The Franco-German tactician had just landed his biggest scoop yet since turning coach many years ago and obviously basked in the euphoria of now becoming a coach to qualify for the biggest sporting event in world football.

“I am extremely proud to be a World Cup qualifying coach and hope to be in Russia to compete for glory and not to make up the number”, Rohr said.

He expressed confidence in his team to put up a creditable outing that Nigerians will be proud of.
