Super Eagles’ head coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that the team’s target at the 2018 FIFA World Cup is to reach the quarter-finals.
Speaking to reporters, Rohr revealed that some players from the recently completed Africa Nations Championship would be invited to the camp.
According to Complete Sports, Rohr said, “The idea is to have three players for every position in camp from where I would probably pick the best two each and three of the five goalkeepers for the World Cup in Russia. Some home based players competing at CHAN in Morocco will join the camp because of their good showing so far in the African cup of Nations championship.”
“We have set a target to reach the quarter final of the World Cup and for this reason, we have taken only the best players who are fit and in good form. We have a good program going to Russia with series of friendly games that will put us in shape for the World Cup,” he added.
