The German coach has been rewarded with a new contract.

Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr has officially signed a two-year deal with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Rohr was appointed Super Eagles boss in August 2016 with the mandate to take Nigeria to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Following Super Eagles fine run in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign, the German coach has been rewarded with a new contract.

 

Although Rohr’s new contract has been public knowledge for a while, the 64-year-old officially signed the new deal at a press conference held at the Eko Hotels and Suites on Wednesday, January 17.

The Super Eagles finished unbeaten from a tough Group B that had Zambia, Cameroon and Zambia, winning four games and drawing two.

 

The Franco-German coach was initially given a two-year contract when he was first appointed which will expire immediately after the World Cup.

This new contract will stretch his stay as Super Eagles boss to 2020.

Rohr’s Super Eagles record

Rohr started his Super Eagles stint with a 1-0 win over Tanzania in the qualifiers for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Next was the wins against Zambia and Cameroon in the qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

He played three friendly games; a draw against Senegal, Corsica and a win against Togo.

 

In August September, the Super Eagles beat Cameroon in a 2018 World Cup qualifier before a draw in the second leg.

They beat Zambia in October to seal qualification to the World Cup before a draw away at Algeria to round-up the qualifying series.

Earlier in November, the Super Eagles beat Argentina 4-2 in a friendly game.
