Gernot Rohr plans new team for Russian Federation 2018 World Cup

Gernot Rohr plans new team for Russian Federation 2018 World Cup

Insisting that he has not yet assembled his choice World Cup team, Rohr was emphatic that he would parade his best players in the group final game against Algeria in Constantine on November 6.

Ex-international, Jonathan Akpoborie, has joined the clarion calls for early preparations for the Super Eagles ahead the 2018 FIFA World Cup billed for Russian Federation.

With the victory, Nigeria now tops their Group B which comprises Cameroon, Zambia and Algeria with 13 points and qualified for the World Cup with a game to spare.

Remarkably, Nigeria is making her sixth FIFA World Cup appearance since its debut in U.S. '94.

"But I assure you the National Assembly will appropriate well enough funds for to prosecute the World Cup such that funds will not be an issue and the players won't lack anything".




And the former Hull City playmaker is confident that with the mixture of both young and experienced players in the squad they could aim higher than their previous performance where they exited the tournament in the second round. On record, Rohr has played 10 matches, winning six and losing only one.

Issues concerning owning a Nigerian passport stopped him from honouring the call to represent Nigeria who are already through to the World Cup courtesy of their 1-0 win over Zambia.

It has been a disastrous campaign for them as Alcaraz only took charge of the team in April following the resignation of Leekens in February before their reverse tie against Nigeria.

The only loss was against South Africa's Bafana Bafana in Uyo, at the start of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in June 2017.
