The Super Eagles of Nigeria will start their world cup qualifiers campaign in Novemver, to secure a place at the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The Eagles are drawn in Group C with Zimbabwe, South Africa, Benin Republic, Rwanda, and Lesotho.
This qualifying round will see the Super Eagles face ex-coach Gernot Rohr with his new team Benin Republic, as he seeks to book a spot in the 2026 world cup. Recall that the NFF on December 2021, terminated Rohr’s contract as Super Eagles coach, after months of squabble between the federation and the Franco-German coach who managed the team for 64 months.
Following his sack, Rohr dragged the NFF to the football’s world governing body, FIFA, to demand an additional sum for damages.
Former Nigerian forward, Jonathan Akpoborie believes that the former Eagles coach will be waging war on the Super Eagles, to prevent the team from qualifying for the 2026 world cup.
