2022 Qatar World Cup: ‘We want to qualify early’ – Gernot Rohr

Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr says he hopes Nigeria can secure an early qualification to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar as they have won their opening two games against the Lone Star of Liberia and Blue Sharks of Cape Verde early this month.

Rohr’s team will now face Central African Republic in a double-header next month with the first fixture to be staged at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

Recall that in the 2018 FIFA world cup in Russia, the Super Eagles were the first African country to secure a place at the last world cup

“We always want to qualify quickly as possible,” Rohr told ESPN.

“We look forward to continue our good football to qualify early and to have this team spirit, which is interesting for me and to the country to have fighting players.”
