Former Nigeria’s International, Victor Ikpeba says Super Eagles can be the number one team in Africa under Gernot Rohr if the Coach is offered a new long-term contract.

He is of the option that the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF will do well to give the coach a new deal based on what he has so far attained with the team.

Rohr first took charge of Nigeria in 2016, before the contract was extended till 2020 and the deal will expire in June and from this month he is free to discus with other teams.

Ikpeba added that Nigeria still not the best team in Africa, but have made some progress under Coach Rohr, who has pushed his youthful team to play at the World Cup and finish third at the AFCON.

The former International advised that the NFF should ne give him a long-term deal so that he can continue the good work.
