Gernot Rohr may have Nigeria knocking on the door to the finals of the 2018 World Cup but he has not yet debuted an impressive talent in any critical position for the Super Eagles. For nearly 12 months and counting, he has depended on players previously debuted by previous coaches. Sure, he has debuted a few players but none has claimed a major starting or impactful role. That inability to unearth special talent in critical positions will now present a challenge for him in the upcoming and crucial games against Cameroon, barely a month away.

Rohr has coped with makeshift substitute Akpeyi but Akpeyi's instability in goal has run the ire of the public and a new face is needed. Unfortunately, Rohr has not shown the ability to hurriedly find suitable replacement not just at the goalkeeping position but elsewhere. Table 1, below, shows that several previous coaches were able to debut an impactful player within one year of appointment but Rohr has not been able to do this in his 12 months stay on the job. Now, a replacement in goal is urgent.

The difficulties of statistical thinking describes a puzzling limitation of our mind: our excessive confidence in what we believe we know, and our apparent inability to acknowledge the full extent of our ignorance and the uncertainty of the world we live in. We are prone to overestimate how much we understand about the world and to underestimate the role of chance in events -- Daniel Kahneman (2011), Winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics
