W’Cup Qualifiers: Super Eagles fans call for Rohr’s sack after loss to CAR

Nigerian football fans have called on the Nigeria Football Federation to sack the Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr after Nigeria’s home loss to the Central African Republic on Thursday in Lagos.
Although the Super Eagles top Group C in the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup Africa qualifiers, the loss was unexpected of a team that features stars from Europe’s top-flight leagues.
Missing two of his key starters, goalkeeper Maduka Okoye and midfielder Alex Iwobi, Rohr’s charges conceded a goal from Karl Namngandaa in the last minute of play after an abysmal display from the home side.

A Facebook user with the name Ekpenyong Emmanuel said, “It is high time NFF sack Rohr. After five years of being in charge of a team, Rohr can’t build a team with a play pattern. #Sack Rohr Now! (sic)”
A Twitter fan with the handle @chaichowski also said, “Rohr shouldn’t be the coach managing the Super Eagles in 2021, he does not have any persona to match this squad, pay him and sack him, get a young vibrant coach, please (sic).”
While many are calling for the Franco-German’s sack, some fans also recalled that the coach had not been paid for a long period.
A Facebook user named Mmenyeneabasi Akpan said, “A loss at home to the Central African Republic is the height of abysmal performance from the Super Eagles. It’s one that should earn coach Gernot Rohr a sack Letter. I just remembered NFF is owning Coach Rohr 8 months of salary.”
Nigeria will face the Central African Republic on Sunday, October 10 in the second leg of the qualifiers in Cameroon, hoping to put the loss behind them.
