Nigeria Would Be Extremely Fortunate To Win Against Cameroon. The Super Eagles Should Be Comfortable With Being Underdogs

It seems to be Nigeria a legitimate challenger for such a title according to Naija football news, both with and without Gernot Rohr’s 68-year-old existence unsure. It is feasible, but that is not probable. Winning teams are an example of several elements, along with a highly structured group, the versatility of capability, and technical steadiness, to name a few.

The Super Eagles’ ethos progressively indicates to a squad out from its depths by the above-mentioned metrics. Nonetheless, if the Central African Republic shocks Nigeria in Lagos, it looks unjust to reject the prospects of a team that placed third in the last AFCON. 

Algerian will be without a doubt the frontrunner, having gone at least 30 matches without losing to Africa opponents and defeating Nigerians repeatedly since 2019. As Algeria has the championship to lose, so there are few grounds to believe that won’t reach the final in Cameroon.

Expectations Shattered

Nigeria has successfully qualified for such previous two FIFA World Cups, in 2014 in Brazil and 2018 in Russia. However, the next quest for just a fourth successive qualifying might be more difficult than the previous two.


  • Nigerian football supporters are prone to assume that all Rohr’s Falcons need now is a dosage of good fortune, rather than greater preparations, after both the 2018 World Cup and AFCON failures.
  • Many believe it’s less to do with fortune and more with the league’s gaffer’s lack of game style of management or approach. It has resulted in waning confidence in the Eagles’ ability to win the AFCON following year qualifying for Qatar 2022.
  • The reason for this gloom is partly due to the Eagles’ inability to win in their past three games, despite the reality that they were friendly games. 
  • Gernot Rohr’s tinkering with the Eagles has never convinced all Nigerian football fans.
  • “For all that Gernot Rohr’s stint as Super Eagles coach has been beneficial in terms of outcomes, his ability to affect the match as it progresses has always been the poorest component of his job,” Solace Chukwu wrote for Goal in 2018.
  • After blowing a 4 lead against Sierra Leone in the first leg and struggling to a 0-0 draw in the return leg in 2019, Nigeria’s ministry of youth affairs, Sunday Dare, erupted in wrath. 
  • “The Super Eagles’ record in their past two games throws into doubt the fitness and skills of Technical Adviser, Rohr.” The necessary steps will be taken. Apologize sincerely to all football fans. The Minister has now calmed down, and Rohr is still riding high.

Can Rohr Shift Or Get Fortunate?

Yakubu Aiyegbeni, the senior Eagles attacker, was outspoken during an interview in November 2020, stating, “The trainer is not competent yet.” Allow him to leave.

“Daily, the football becomes worse.” Critics accused them since I was there, as we were far superior to these. The trainer is incompetent and has no idea what he is doing. Gernot Rohr is among our league’s weakest coaches ever.” Ken Ochonogor’s comment to Premium Times reflects the widespread dissatisfaction with Rohr & his dictatorship. “I’ve avoided speaking about Super Eagles because Rohr got engaged.” 

So far, Rohr has struggled against the continent’s finest sides; Nigeria hasn’t beaten a higher-ranked African team since 2019. Each Nigerian wants to see the Eagles win the AFCON competition, particularly in Cameroon.


As a result, tempering hopes of Gernot Rohr’s Super Eagles won the AFCON, striking the purple patch, plus picking Nigeria’s 4th star now at Afcon is the most “objective and systematic” stance. To sum it up, it suggests that the Eagles, beneath Rohr, can’t be entrusted to perform what is required.
