Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has hinted that the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar will be a realistic target for the team.
Rohr made this known while speaking with the media at his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of the international friendly match with Three Lions of England at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.
The Franco-German tactician was quoted as follows: “England have a lot of youthfulness,” said the German. “We are the youngest – I saw a Fifa table – and they are the third or fourth-youngest. I heard the coach of England say he wants to win the World Cup in 2022 – so we can say the same. This is a World Cup match for us.”
Rohr will lead the Super Eagles against Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in Group D of Russia 2018 World Cup.
