Gernot Rohr begins to make his mark as Nigeria plot World Cup 2018 spot

James Rodriguez nets another absolute screamer in training, and Sturridge is dancing off his critics in The Sweeper.
Gernot Rohr has Nigeria primed for World Cup 2018 qualification.

Not many fans were enamoured when Gernot Rohr was named Nigeria coach in August.

Firstly, the German was not a big-name coach at the same level as Frenchman Paul Le Guen, who had turned down the job despite participating in the interview process.

And, despite a good coaching record with Bordeaux, his international credentials did not go much higher than the likes of Gabon, Niger and Burkina Faso. Not exactly a CV that stirs the blood of passionate Nigerian fans wanting someone to return their team...

A revitalised Victor Moses is enjoying life at Antonio Conte's Chelsea

It's been a breath of fresh air for Victor Moses under Antonio Conte, as he seems to now be thriving at Chelsea.
The guys address your tweets about Raheem Sterling, Victor Moses and the Americans who could join Bob Bradley at Swansea.

LONDON -- After three years as a Premier League nomad, Victor Moses is finally back where he always wanted to be.

And as he sits in a room overlooking the sun-drenched first-team training pitch at Chelsea's Cobham training complex, there is more than a hint of indignation in his words at the fact he has been made to wait this long.

"I'm delighted to be back," Moses told ESPN FC. "I thought I did well in my first season here, but due to circumstances -- a manager going, a manager coming in -- I wasn't...

John Obi Mikel's benching at Chelsea might actually benefit Nigeria

Antonio Conte has made several tactical changes to the Chelsea defence. The FC panel break down his ideas.
John Obi Mikel
John Obi Mikel is yet to see a minute of first-team action for Chelsea this season.

John Obi Mikel has not kicked a ball in anger for Chelsea this season. Not in the Premier League, not in the Champions League, not even in the League Cup.

By contrast, he has played eight games for Nigeria, six at the Olympic Games (with one goal) and another two for the senior national team.

After opting to play for his country in Rio, it was expected that a direct consequence would be a loss of an already uncertain club place, where the Nigerian faces strong competition from a variety of players,...

Rohr must find permanent solutions in defence for retooled, refreshed Nigeria

Nigeria action vs Zambia 161009.jpg
Nigeria defeated Zambia 2-1 in World Cup qualifying last Sunday.

It is very rare that Nigeria's Super Eagles return from an away game to high praise on the back of not just a good result, but a sterling performance to boot. Gernot Rohr and his newly retooled team did just that last Sunday, warming the hearts of many fans with their refreshing 2-1 victory over Zambia.

Even more exhilarating for fans back home was the use of talented young players like Manchester City's Kelechi Iheanacho, Arsenal's Alex Iwobi and Genk's Wilfred Ndidi -- not to mention the brass...

Victor Moses, Isaac Success could face Nigeria bans for refusing call-ups

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer takes us on a journey through a special international break edition of the Sweeper.
Victor Moses picked up an injury the time of his most recent Nigeria call-up.

Chelsea's Victor Moses and Watford's Isaac Success could be banned by Nigeria after failing to honour invitations for the last World Cup qualifying squad.

Both players were withdrawn from the Nigeria squad after the football federation received letters from their clubs saying they were injured.

There are reports that Nigeria's football federation will report both players to FIFA, which would mean they could be prevented from playing for their clubs this weekend, but NFF first vice president Seyi...
