German  coach  Gernot Rohr has hinted about a far-reaching  consequences for the Super  in the Qatar 2022 Play-off   should  Nigeria fail to put its house in order  ahead of the  forthcoming  Africa Cup of Nations(AFCON)  in Cameroon.

With the World Cup playoff draws holding in January, a bad tournament for the Super Eagles in Cameroon could see them drop in the FIFA rankings.

Nigeria is currently fifth in Africa and Egypt, who are sixth, have begun their quest to upstage Nigeria in World Cup play-off seeding.


With the Arab Cup which started yesterday, Egypt have been presented with golden opportunities of pushing Nigeria down to sixth position as the Super Eagles have neither a competitive nor friendly match to garner points ahead of the Nations Cup.

The top four teams of Senegal, Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia are well secured from possible toppling. Even the trio of Algeria, Morocco and Algeria have added chances of consolidating on account of having matches in the Arab Cup.
