Former Kwara United coach, Samson Unuanel has urged Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr to raise the standard of play of the senior national team to a level where it can compete against the rest of the world.
Unuanel made this known on the backdrop of the game between Germany and France at the ongoing Euro 2020, where the French team won by a narrow 1-0 margin on Tuesday.
Recall that the three-time Africa Cup of Nation champions struggled to impress in their last international friendly games against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon. The Super Eagles lost the first match 1-0 before holding their Cameroonian counterpart to a goalless draw in the reverse fixture.
The games were meant to prepare the team ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Liberia in September. Nigeria is also expected to face Mexico in a friendly game on July 3 in Los Angeles, USA.
Speaking with NGNewsHub.com, Unuanel stated that the Super Eagles are yet to reach the same level as France and Germany.

He said that the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr must improve the team technically in order to face the task ahead of the team.
“Watching the game between France and Germany made me have a change of thoughts that we are yet to reach the same level like these two teams.
“I was watching quality football at its very best and I think the Super Eagles can also play like this if Gernot Rohr improves the team technically. With the quality of players at his disposal, I see no reason why we can’t compete at the same level with some of the best teams in the world.” Unuanel concluded.
