Minister of Youth and Sports Development , Sunday Dare , has questioned the competence of Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr in the wake of the team ’ s recent draws against Sierra Leone on Tuesday .
Dare , who made this known in a tweet on Wednesday , stated that the “ needful will be done ” as Nigerian football deserved better .
Rohr has come under severe criticism after the Eagles failed to defeat Sierra Leone over two legs at the ongoing 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers .
The Eagles redeemed their image on Tuesday playing a goalless draw at the Siaka Stevens Stadium , Freetown .
The result comes after the team threw away a 4 – 0 lead to draw 4 – 4 in a match day 3 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Edo State last Friday.
“ The performance of the Super Eagles from their last two matches calls to question the suitability and competence of Technical Adviser , Rohr .
Nigerian football deserves better . The needful will be done . Apologies to all football lovers . ”
The Eagles still stay top of Group L with eight points , one ahead of second – placed Benin Republic who they face on matchday 5 in Cotonou . A win for the Eagles in the encounter will secure qualification for the 2022 AFCON in Cameroon
