The Super Eagles coach noted that Nigeria did not qualify for the last two editions of the Africa Cup of Nations, hence their poor FIFA ranking.

The German gaffer picked three North African countries, as well as Senegal as the favourites for the AFCON 2019 title.

“No, I do not think we can say that. When we look at the ranking of Africa and FIFA, we are not the first African country,” Rohr told girondins4ever.com.

“There are other countries in front of us, I think we are fourth. There is Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt that may be favourite at home for the AFCON, there is also Senegal in front of us.

“The ranking is not just the latest results, but for a few years.

“In 2014, 2015, Nigeria was not great and did not qualify for the last two AFCON. It has somewhat handicapped its ranking at FIFA and Africa,” he added.
