Former Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has expressed disappointment with the performances of African teams at the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup.
After the first round of matches, no African side recorded a win, with the Black Stars the only team from the continent that registered goals.
The Netherlands defeated African champions Senegal, while Tunisia and Morocco played goalless draws with Denmark and Croatia, respectively.
Ghana lost 3-2 to Portugal, while Switzerland defeated Cameroon 1-0, meaning all African teams will struggle to qualify from their respective groups.

Rohr, however, tipped defending champions France to go all the way in Qatar. He said, as per The Nation:
“I am a little disappointed with the African teams. Senegal played a good match but lost in the end. Tunisia and Morocco both had good draws. Despite not scoring any goals, they were very solid.
“We hope that France will be able to defend the trophy. If Mbappe and Giroud are playing very well then France can hope.
“England was also not bad. But let us just wait because we are only in the first round of games. Let us hope for Germany because many teams don’t start very well but get better as the tournament progresses.”
