Youth and Sports Development Minister Sunday Dare has hinted that the Super Eagles head coach could be fired after qualifying for the African Cup of Nations in Sierra Leone on Tuesday.
When the two teams met for the first time on Friday, Nigeria gave up a four-goal lead at halftime to draw 4-4 with the Leone Stars.
Dare has expressed his disappointment at the team’s collapse and demanded a response in Freetown.
However, he deferred comment on Gernot Rohr’s suitability or otherwise as team manager.
“The task at this point is to get the team firmly back on track to choose one of the two group tickets on offer for AFCON 2022.
“A win in Freetown will seal a 19th appearance at the African World Cup.
“After this, we can now debate the suitability of Mr. Rohr as we seek to bring Nigeria back to the pedestal of African soccer and one of the powerhouses of beautiful sport in world soccer.
“We will reevaluate Mr. Rohr’s performance since he was appointed Super Eagles manager and see if he is the right man to meet our expectations,” Dare told Sporting Life.
