This coach doesn't know what he is doing.

His management of today's game was very questionable. We could have won by a comfortable 4-0 margin but he let a surprisingly poor Zambian team off the hook. A 3rd goal would have totally broken their spirit at the start of the 2nd half instead he let his team pass the ball around aimlessly. He should have made his changes While they were piling pressure on us and not after they scored. He must be so used to playing mediocre talent if he thought Ighalo & Musa were good enough for the national team

I often use the word "POISE" to describe great players. If you want to know what it means, go check out Nachos goal.

I still dont know Simon's claim to fame for making the national team. He is not good enough in my opinion. Moses or Success would have been more effective in that spot

Ndidi is a better player than Musa, but he needs to get comfortable in that RB position

Iwobi was just ok, but I know he is on his way to greatness.

Ideye was much, much better than Ighalo. He actually had chances to score.

The rest of them played ok...

A local coach would likely have lost this game to Zambia..

It's called controlled possession, and it got us a clear chance to close out the game, but for Ideye, whom ironically you are praising here.

True he had some good moments and was superb for the 2nd goal, but he didn't do nearly enough...

Rohr needed to bring on Esiti before that goal. I called it at halftime, dont know why he had to wait.

Other than that our players were far too casual in the second half.

Omeruo is a junk defender. The only 2 goals we have conceeded in our last 4 matches were a result of his uselessness. Today and vs Luxembourg. This cannot be forgiven.

Ndidi today was useless at right back. Echijele was also useless.

If Joel Obi can stay fit he needs to play LB.

RB search continues, Ndidi was abused today like a child in a room full of pedophiles.

You don't know what you are saying.
Do you think the boys played these beautiful combinations just out of nothing?
You can easily spot that our players for the first time for ages were actually well prepared.
They actually practiced dead ball situations and off-the ball-movement.
For the first time our dead balls were dangerous and our players could string more than 3 passes together.
To think Rohr does not play a part in this is ridiculous.

Rohr might not be a magician but he is simply the right coach for this team.
Nevertheless there is still a lot of work to do, especially when it comes to defending and our balance in midfield.
But I'm confident the boys will improve in time.

I like the way that he has the team playing, but he definitely waited too long to bring Esiti on. Ditto for Musa. With the tide turning in Zambia's favor, his best avenue to changing the game should have been bringing on Esiti and Musa. Esiti to add extra steel in defensive midifield and Musa to exploit them on the counter. Neither move materialized when it should have.

That said, taking 3 points in Zambia no be beans so he deserves some kudos as well.

For heavens sakes what is this statement based on? Cameroon that has hardly done jack for the past 8 years, that we beat in a friendly with a rag tag team, or Algeria that I bet you haven't seen play since the World Cup. Na wa.

Rohr hasn't been on the job for a minute, and you are passing mind buggling judgements. One can see he's using a system of elimination, in gradually knowing his real team. It is clear he is still trying to know his players, what is the use of changing a struggling player for one whom you don't know or trust and probably performed worse during training. That takes time, so chill.

Every dummy coach in soccer knows a 2 goal advantage is the most dangerous lead you can have in soccer... The first 15 minutes of the 2nd half should have been played at a blistering pace in a search for a goal by our team.

Ndidi does not play right back and you could tell during the game by the way he was trying to defend on one one situations ... but he was still a better player than musa and with time he will settle into the role.

Nigeria has never beaten Zambia away before. Today we made HISTORY. Take your crappy local coaches and piss off.

Trust me, this Zambia team is a shadow of their previous teams... they have a little more spirit in them than what we saw today. I have seen both Cameroon and Algeria play in the last 3-6 months and they looked good. If you think Cameroon is going to show up with the same jacked team we played a few months ago you must be dreaming bro..

Rohr has played 4 games thus far, i think i can see what he is made of in 4 games...

Did we not have better players in away matches vs

Swaziland
Tanzania
Sudan
S. Africa
Egypt
Namibia
Malawi

Pray tell me what happened in those away matches coached by your precious local coaches.

One thing is for sure though, great or not, he is far better than all the useless local coaches we have had in the past decade.

The truth is we almost never play Zambia or a team of Zambia Caliber becuase the rankings dont allow it... But since we have both fallen in the rankings..now we meet each other... Again this is not your daddy's Zambia ! .. You want to know how bad they are ?? Watch their games vs Cameroon and Algeria....

I like good coaches, local or otherwise... This Rohr is "piss" poor. You are the same people in a few months when he is not getting the same results who will be calling for his head.... But I trust you wont... you will stick with him the same way your stuck with Ighalo even though the ship was sinking with him.
