DW Sports Correspondent Mark Meadows sat down for an exclusive interview with Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr, ahead of his country's Africa Cup of Nations final against Egypt.
No African soccer team has ever reached the World Cup semi-finals. For the 2018 tournament in Russia, five strong teams could change that. But it's not going to be an easy feat.
Gernot Rohr tells DW that Cameroon would be worthier AFCON winners than Egypt and that his Nigeria side have a newfound spirit to succeed in future. On the Bundesliga, he says he is not surprised by RB Leipzig's rise.
As the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations enters its decisive phase, the tournament remains controversial in its host country. According to critics, its only purpose is to distract attention from Gabon's huge social problems.
The African Nations Cup was plagued by low scoring, the usual empty seats and apathy among the people of host nation Gabon. But on the field, Cameroon's surprise success gave us a wonderful narrative yet again.
