The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) wants Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr, to begin final preparations for the 2019 Africa cup of nations and 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Nigeria will play South Africa in the Nations cup qualifiers in June before facing African champions Cameroon in the world cup qualifiers in August.

The Eagles missed out of the last two editions of the Nations cup and the NFF says efforts are being channeled to ensure the country qualify for major football tournaments.
