Sports lovers and social media users have again called for the sack of Super Eagle coach, Gernot Rohr following the goalless draw against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone.
GWG recalls that the Super Eagles last Friday from a four goal lead were forced to a 4-4 draw with the West African side.
Many expressed anger at the match outcome saying that it was time for the Rohr to exit the national team as he has not lived up to expectations.
With the grievances of last week’s match not yet settled, the Eagles with its array of stars was again forced to another draw in the reverse feature in Freetown on Tuesday.
The development has again reignited the call for the sack of Rohr who many believe has overstayed his welcome.
GWG brings some of their views below:

Rohr stumbled to an AFCON bronze and couldn’t get out of a WC group with Iceland and the worst Argentina team to ever play at a world cup. I intensely dislike double standards.”
