The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare on Wednesday thanked Super Eagles’ Coach, Gernot Rohr for his work and contribution to football in Nigeria while receiving the coach during a courtesy visit at the MKO Abiola National Stadium Abuja.

Mr Dare promised to support the coach and the team to succeed even as expressed concerns at the current state of football in Nigeria with an optimistic assertion that things would get better.
He said "Are we happy about where our football is at the moment? Not exactly but we know there's an ongoing process that will make this country a better football nation. That process is on and you are part of the process," Mr. Dare told Rohr.
He further expressed hope that Nigeria would maintain the recent victory against Lesotho, "Nigeria is a football loving nation. We love our football and we also love our victories," the minister said.
