The dwindling fortunes of Nigeria in age group competitions and female football is giving coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr, a lot to worry about.
Rohr whose main job is to steer the Super Eagles back to the top of Africa Football has so far succeeded in turning around the fortunes of the Super Eagles, with three wins from their first three games under the German.
However, it was not only with the senior side that work needed to be done. Recent results at age-group level had also not been as successful as the past.
“This is something that I wanted to help change,” Rohr said. “I also offered to accompany the local selection, even if I was not in charge of it directly. I also said I would keep an eye out for the national women’s team. These are some of the things I said I wanted to do when I started in August last year.”
