Former Super Eagles coach Adegboye Onigbinde has tasked the new handler Gernot Rohr to beat Tanzania in the last game of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on September 3.
The German was recently appointed Super Eagles technical adviser on a two year contract by the Nigeria Football Federation.
The game against Tanzania, though inconsequential, will serve as a test for Rohr, Onigbinde believes.
“The NFF believe that he (Rohr) is the right man for the job and he should prove himself starting with the match against Tanzania,” Onigbinde said.
“It is sad that Nigeria will not be featuring in any continental competition next year and that is the more reason why the coach should do what he has been employed to do.
“Nigerians are waiting to see what he will do when the 2018 World Cup qualifiers begin and that will be another disaster if the Eagles cannot qualify.
“The administrators should ask themselves a lot of questions on why we will not be competing across all levels of competitions next year. The answer they get will really move our football forward. But for now, the coach needs to ensure that he does the work he has to do.”
