Gernot Rohr is hopeful of taking Nigeria to the finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Rohr steered the Super Eagles to Russia with a game to spare in a group termed "the group of death", competing against Cameroon, Algeria and Zambia. Speaking on Nigeria's chances in 2018, he said he hopes to break new record. “I wish to have a group not too difficult to come out of the group, thereafter anything can happen. I hope to surpass the record of the USA 94 World Cup at least a quarter final spot at next year World Cup in Russia,” he told Sporting Life.
