The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) is reportedly in contact with technical sponsors Nike over a new contract.

He said: "Nigeria is blessed with young talented footballers who are capable of bringing good results".

"We pray also for the players to remain injury-free, they must also remain focused and listen to their coach".

The fresh deal is expected to be agreed and signed before the Super Eagles play their first match at the 2018 World Cup next month. We have played Argentina and Poland and we defeated both teams; both games are good enough to test the waters. "We want to make history, to do well".

"He (Efe) would be of enormous help to the Super Eagles defence at the World Cup, while Junior Ajayi would have added fire power to the Eagles attack, and should have been given the chance to prove himself".

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com reported that out of the 32 teams playing at the World Cup, Rohr is the 24th highest paid coach.

The veteran coach told NAN that Rohr should be commended for the quality of players that he selected for the preparations for the World Cup in Russian Federation. We have everything prepared in terms of logistics, training, accommodation and welfare. You don't pick players just to make up the numbers or based on sentiments because the opportunity might come there for him to play - anybody might get injured.
