Why Nigeria can’t win FIFA World Cup now – Rohr

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has stated that Nigeria is not good enough to win the FIFA World Cup yet.

Rohr who stated this in a YouTube interview session with New Central TV and monitored by our correspondent also said Africa cannot challenge other continents for the coveted title.

According to the German tactician, the level of organisation in Africa remained one of major issues working against the continent in winning the FIFA World Cup trophy

“We are not ready to win the world cup, for some reason, First reason for me is the organisation, still a lots of problems in travelling arrangement, preparations and venue for games.

“France is the champions at the moment, where they are playing? They are playing in PSG, Bayern Munich. Four of them are world champions at their clubs also.

“When you have your players in the best clubs there is a probability that you are the best team in the world .

“So what we have in Nigeria for example, we have our players in Fulham, in West Bromwich. It’s not Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Manchester United or Barcelona. But the other ones they have their players there.

“So it would be a miracle if we actually win the world cup, Rohr said.

Speaking further, Rohr said it is not easy to play new invitees into the team because of space as well the players need to time to understand the set up.

“They need a new time to come in and it is not easy from a few training sessions to find the right way to play them. We have to invite better players for friendlies which are not for the results but to try out new players”, he noted.
