Nigeria: Russia 2018 World Cup - My Target Is to Qualify From Our Group - Rohr
By Jacob Ajom
http://allafrica.com/stories/201801180099.html


Against the backdrop of very high expectations among Nigerians, including the Nigeria Football Federation hierarchy on Nigeria's prospects at the Russia 2018, Super Eagles handler, Gernot Rohr has a very modest ambition.

The German tactician has refused to be carried away by the roller-coaster fashion his team qualified for the Mundial, when he set his World Cup target in Lagos yesterday.

Asked what his target was, given the excellent performance by the Eagles during the qualifiers, Rohr retorted, "my target is to qualify from our group. That is my first target."

Rohr who was answering questions from journalists, soon after his contract extension ceremony at the Eko Hotel, Victoria Island Lagos, said, "I pray we can beat Croatia, one of the most technically sound teams in Europe, Iceland play like us, we hope to beat them as well and Argentina who we beat last time in a friendly may not come cheap because they have known us and may want to revenge that defeat. It is not going to be easy."

Although he believes in his team, Rohr said Nigerians should talk less and work hard

He disclosed that the criteria for invitation and selection of players for the World Cup is simple. "We will look at a player's current form and how active he has been at his club and his level of fitness."

On that he gave kudos to Ahmed Musa's resolve to return to Locomotive Moscow where he will be playing regularly and expressed joy over Iheanacho's work rate during Leicester City's 2-0 win over Fleetwood in the FA Cup match in which the former Manchester City striker scored.

Players have to be fit and active in their clubs and I am happy with what they are doing right now.

Well, I have already said it several times, but I will say it again; we will BEAT Croatia and top the group. According to the name of a Christian Magazine; "It is written."

Good point! What is the meaning of "roller coaster" in this case? If what I think is what the writer of the article meant, what is bad with the way we qualified?

Naija journos are well-versed in "Nigerian English", a colloquial form of English that has become informally accepted due to repeated wrong usage over time. The "roller coaster" in this context has more to do with imagery than the true meaning. Ever wonder why they call coaches "sweat merchants"?

Alright; else to me, "roller coaster" usually mean we are good in a game and bad in another, and as a result, we barely qualified

The joke didn't register with you? :D
Read any naija sports article/report before our game against Algeria after we were already qualified, the genesis of the words "dead rubber" will become clear to you. :D

I think we need to have a sticky thread (dictionary) for words and meaning for the newbies to catch up on the 'correct' naija footie terminologies to use on this site... :D

TT,

No worries. Once our SWEAT MERCHANT releases the list of those who will STORM camp in March, we will be at DAGGERS DRAWN against Poland, after which we will be CONDEMNED to win our DEAD RUBBER friendly against Serbia.
