Rohr vows to make Super Eagles African champions again

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has vowed to guide the Nigerian national team to a fourth Africa Cup of Nations triumph. 

Rohr signed a two-year contract extension that will keep him until 2022 and has revealed he made sacrifices in his new deal as he aims to guide the national team fourth AFCON victory. 

"This is a special job because this is my team, I built it with my staff," he said as quoted by the Punch. 

"It’s a very young team, but the mission is not finished yet, so we want to continue. We all have to make sacrifices and I will be the first."

On AFCON 

"Let’s qualify for (the Nations Cup) and then we want to win it. We have a good team, we’re now number three in Africa. When I arrived (in 2016), we were number 13. We have worked together for the past four years and I hope we can progress."

The 66-year-old led the Super Eagles team to third place during last year's AFCON in Egypt, where they suffered a 2-1 defeat to champions Algeria in the semi-finals.
