The Super Eagles put in a dismal performance once again and Nigerians on social media explained why Rohr is to blame.
Nigeria’s Super Eagles recorded a 1-1 draw against Cape Verde in their final group game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers played on Tuesday, November 16, 2021.
The Super Eagles went in front as early as the first minute through Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.
The lead did not last long as Cape Verde equalized in the fifth minute to silence the Super Eagles fans at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.
The affair became cagey from there as the Super Eagles eventually held on to share the points.
The draw meant that the Super Eagles finished top of their group and advanced to the next stage of the qualification series which is the playoffs.
While the Super Eagles sealed qualification to the next stage, Nigerians on Twitter were once again not impressed with the tactics deployed by Technical adviser Gernot Rohr.
The Super Eagles seemed satisfied with a draw and failed to play with any cohesion or structure.
Nigerians took to Twitter to share their frustration with Rohr and his tactics, questioning his selection process.
Rohr’s days are numbered
After a 2-0 victory against Liberia at the weekend, there was backlash about how the team was performing under Rohr.
However, the pressure on Rohr has intensified as many Nigerians on Twitter now believe he should be sacked before the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon.
Here are their reactions to Rohr
Rohr also was blasted for the recall of striker Odion Ighalo who was retired.
Nigerians believe that the integration of Ighalo into the fold only shows Rohr’s incompetence.
The Super Eagles will take a two-month break as they get to know their opponents in the playoffs and prepare for the upcoming AFCON in Cameroon.
