Rohr: Semi-finals is the target for Super Eagles

The Franco-German has ruled out the 2013 African Champions from winning the 2019 editions billed to hold in Egypt.

With a qualifying game in hand against Seychelles, Nigeria already have qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, meanwhile, the Technical Adviser of the team Gernot Rohr has played down talks of the country winning her fourth AFCON title.

Whilst the former Gabon manager trusted his young squad to perform well in Egypt, he said the semi-finals would be the team target.

Rohr said in an interview with CAF website, via Completesports: “If we have good preparation in good conditions, Nigeria must aim for the semi-finals of AFCON 2019.

“We have a very young team that can do well.”
