Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has set his sights on leading Nigeria to AFCON glory in 2019. He however insists that he does not regret the failure to lead the three-time African champions past the group stage of the ongoing World Cup in Russia

He stressed that he has nothing to regret about Nigeria's inability to go beyond the group stage in Russia and added that he never thought of quitting the job, as he believes the team can still do well in subsequent competitions.

"When you have a team playing this good, beating Iceland who are ranked 20 in the world, while we are 49, a team that had Argentina who are number six in the world close to a knockout, who would think of resigning from this team?

"You would need to question your own work. No, it's out of the question for me right now. Our project is also focused on the 2018 AFCON as well as the next World Cup".
