Gernot Rohrpinn

Gernot Rohr has done well to be rewarded with a new two-year contract, according to president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick.

“After signing the agreement on payment to the team from expected FIFA income, the next stage was to take care of the Technical Adviser,” said Pinnick.

“He has done very well and does not need to go into the World Cup uncertain of his future.”

“I love working with this group,” Rohr said.

“I am delighted being at the head of such a wonderful, level –headed and ambitious squad.”

The 64 –year old Rohr, a former Germany defender, flaunts a sterling record with the Super Eagles, winning seven of 12 matches and drawing four in his 15 months in charge so far.

His only loss was a 2-0 defeat to South Africa in a 2019 AFCON qualifier in Uyo in June 2017.

Under him, the Eagles have beaten Tanzania, Zambia (twice), Algeria, Togo, Cameroon and two –time world champions Argentina, and drawn with Senegal, Corsica, Cameroon and Algeria.
