Gernot Rohr is confident that the Super Eagles will qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, but must not underestimate any of their opponents in the qualifying campaign.
Super Eagles have been drawn in Group C against Cape Verde, Central African Republic, and Liberia in the second round of the African qualifiers.
With just a few months away from the start of the second round the African qualifiers for Qatar 2022, Rohr said the Super Eagles must be wary of all their opponents.
“We have three opponents in the group and have to respect all of them. Liberia is a team that can’t be underestimated as we saw when we beat them in a friendly,” Rohr told the Fifa website.
“As for Cape Verde, they have players of Portuguese and Brazilian origin, and they can beat any team. The central African Republic are an unknown quantity for us, which makes it more difficult. I think the group is tough, but we believe in our capabilities.
“Given that we qualified from the group of death for Russia 2018, we’re confident we can make it this time as well,” he said.
Rohr also hopes that his team will be among the winners of the 10 groups that will do battle for the final five slots as African representatives in Qatar.
