2026 WCQ:We’ll strive for victory against the Super Eagles, says Gernot Rohr.

by Admin

Former Super Eagles coach, now leading Benin Republic, Gernot Rohr, has expressed his team’s status as underdogs ahead of Monday’s clash with the Super Eagles but emphasized their determination to secure a victory.

Benin Republic will host the Super Eagles in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, on matchday 4 of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on Monday, June 10. The Benin side enters the fixture following a 1-0 win against Rwanda, placing them third with four points.

In contrast, the Super Eagles are yet to secure a win after drawing all three games and currently hold fifth place in the standings.

Rohr, who managed the Eagles from 2016 to 2021, successfully guided them to the 2019 and 2021 AFCONs. Despite achieving a third-placed finish in 2019, he was dismissed shortly before the start of AFCON 2021. Additionally, he led the team to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

In his pre-match press conference, Rohr stated, “Nigeria is a great team. We are the underdogs, but we will play tomorrow to win.”

Nigeria’s Coach Finidi George understands the significance of a successful qualification campaign, given the team’s absence from the last World Cup in Qatar. His focus remains on securing qualification, taking it one match at a time, starting with the upcoming challenge against Benin Republic.
