Nigeria have qualified for the play-offs for the 2022 World Cup. The Super Eagles were held to a draw at home by Cape Verde in their final game. But coach Gernot Rohr is facing some harsh criticism. Former Nigeria international and television consultant Idah Peterside has called for his dismissal.
"Nigeria must sack Rohr. He has lost the team, he has taken us as far as he can go." A sentence that may sound harsh. Idah Peterside, however, gives the reasons for this.
