Gernot Rohr plans new team for Russian Federation 2018 World Cup

Nigeria on Saturday became the first African team and the 12th in the world to qualify for the global football event.

Super Eagles left full back Elderson Echiejile has been ruled out of Nigeria's final World Cup 2018 Qualifiers tie against Algeria in Algiers after picking up a hamstring injury in their 1-0 win over Zambia last weekend.

"It is a very important position for any team. They are a delight to be with at all times, and I believe we can do more in the coming tournaments and matches to come", he remarked last night. "But we sat down together and promised ourselves that we would go all out and get the ticket".

"Okocha says that the world will watch with envy when Nigerian side storm product in Russian Federation 2018 as a finished product.He says he can not help but admire the massive talents at Gernot Rohr 's disposal, adding that all that is required now is for the players to look beyond Africa's semi-final expectations".

The Pakistan Army recovered five abducted foreigners kidnapped by terrorists in 2012 after an operation, it emerged on Thursday. One counterterrorism official said they believed it was a reference to Pakistan's assistance in freeing Coleman and her family.

Buhari called on all Nigerians to apply the values of perseverance, resilience, discipline, hard work and team-spirit, which propelled the players to excel since the beginning of the qualifying matches, to all sectors of national life.

They are now searching for their fifth coach in just over a year since the start of the qualifiers for the World Cup 2018, where they are rooted to the bottom of group B.

"Players in the mould of Zinedine Zidane and Thiery Henry, who once played under me, are the calibre of stars I would want in the Super Eagles to execute the World Cup finals in Russia", Rohr said.
