With the CAF world cup qualifiers scheduled for early next year, there is the possibility of drawing Ivory Coast, Uganda and South Africa in what will be a group of anxiety.
This will be determined by fifa rankings.
The Super Eagles cannot afford to be complacent.
When Rohr took over, he was an unknown quantity. But now, other African oppositions know his methods, ways and approaches. If the Algerian coach can neutralise him in the Afcon semi-finals so can others.
Only a careless fan will be carried away by the decent collection of players that we are able to assemble at the moment.
Our players are decent, vibrant, exciting and also very beatable.
I look forward to the draws and when hostilities begin.
On paper, we have what it takes to qualify from any group in Africa but the problem is: football is not played on paper!
