Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr will leave today for AFCON 2017 in Gabon, where he will be a pundit for a French television channel.
Nigeria failed to qualify for a second straight AFCON and so Rohr will hope to use Gabon 2017 to monitor the country’s 2018 World Cup rivals, Cameroon and Algeria, at the tournament.
“It will be interesting to see the best teams in Africa in Gabon,” he said.
“I will analyse the opening game on Saturday between Gabon and Guinea Bissau as well as the match between Cameroon and Burkina Faso.”
Nigeria will also know today who will be their opponents for the qualifying series for 2019 AFCON to be hosted by Cameroon.
The qualifiers will begin by the end of March.
