The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will not extend Gernot Rohr’s contract as Super Eagles head coach, if he fails to qualify the country for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Rohr’s men are currently top of Group B of Africa qualifying zone, with six points from their first two matches.
“The mandate given Rohr by his employers is Get the @NGSuperEagles to the 2018 World Cup in Russia or your contract won’t be extended,” the media officer of the Super Eagles, Toyin Ibitoye, tweeted on Monday.
Nigeria will take on reigning African champions Cameroon, who are second in the table, in a crucial double header in August and October this year.
Rohr is currently preparing his squad for next week’s international friendly matches against Senegal and Burkina Faso in London.
