Nigeria manager, Gernot Rohr has revealed he is elated working with the Super Eagles, after the three-time African champions became the first African country to qualify for the Russian Federation 2018 FIFA World Cup on Saturday.

NFF 2nd vice president Shehu Dikko said the Eagles will train in Morocco before they head out to Constantine for their final Group B World Cup qualifier against Algeria. They are a delight to be with at all times, and I believe we are onto great things.

"It show who we are and a little of what we have for now".

The former Chelsea FC of England midfielder could have been going to his fourth World Cup finals if Nigeria had not narrowly (head-to-head principle) missed the 2006 finals in Germany and he had not been injured just before the 2010 finals in South Africa. Every department in the team has to be fixed.
