Stay Calm Super Eagles Are Beatable, Gernot Rohr Tells Upset-Seeking Cheetahs Of Benin

What a twist of fate! Gernot Rohr, the former Nigerian manager now leading the Cheetahs of Benin to stay calm as they face the Super Eagles in a 2026 World Cup qualifying duel.

Obviously, he has seen the precarious situations of his former team even as he hopes to exploit the weaknesses he had observed from the players, most of whom had trained under him.

According to La Nation, a newspaper in Benin Republic, Rohr has told the Cheetahs to stay calm as the Super Eagles are beatable.

He told them that a defeat of the Super Eagles will help the current third place Group C team to consolidate while compounding the Super Eagles’ woes.

The Franco-German technician recognizes the strengths of this Nigerian team, unfortunate finalist of the Afcon 2023 but believes in the ability of his Beninous players.

The Benin Republic confidence is further buoyed by their ability to hold African champions, Cote d’Ivoire to 2-2 draw three months ago and their defeat of the Amavubi of Rwanda last Thursday.

  They are however conscious of the fact that the Super Eagles will be determined to regained their esteem after their ego had been brutally bruised by the trio of Lesotho, Zimbabwe and South Africa.
