Paul Le Guen turns down Nigeria job

 By Colin Udoh

What can Nigeria learn from their Olympic football campaign?

John Obi Mikel celebrates Nigeria's 3-2 win over Honduras in the bronze medal match.

Surrounded by a chaotic buildup to the Games, including a war of words between Nigeria's Sports Ministry and football federation, the Olympic football team delivered the country's lone medal from Rio.

Bronze it may have been, but seeing as it was a very marginal improvement (cough cough) over the grand total of zero from 2012, there was some reason to be, well, less glum.

In any case, there are a four key lessons to take away from Dream Team VI's face-saving campaign:

Gernot Rohr's first Nigeria squad includes Mikel, Iheanacho, Musa

Gernot Rohr
Gernot Rohr was named Nigeria boss last month.

Gernot Rohr has named his first Nigeria squad, picking five England-based players and a handful from the 2016 Olympic team squad to face Tanzania in an 2017 African Nations Cup tie.

Neither country can qualify for the tournament, with the single qualifying place already won by Egypt, but the Super Eagles are using the game as a dress rehearsal for the 2018 World Cup qualifying clash away to Zambia in Ndola in October.

Rohr, named this month as Nigeria coach, has selected 23 players with captain...

John Obi Mikel
John Obi Mikel hasn't just been Nigeria's leader on the pitch, he's played a pivotal role off it as well.

In other climes, such an obstruction might be considered a remarkable turnaround, but for Nigeria, it is par for an obstacle-strewn course.

Off the field, their tribulations read like a litany of sorrows. On the pitch, they have looked imperious in all bar one game,...

Plenty of areas to work on as Nigeria heads into the Olympic quarterfinals

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno assesses the reasons behind Mexico and Argentina's failure at the Olympics.

It would have been no surprise to see Nigeria's under-23 men's football team finish bottom of Group B at the Olympics.

With no allowances throughout their training camp, coach Samson Siasia owed five months wages, having to race against the clock from Atlanta to arrive in Manaus with just hours to spare before their first game, early elimination would have forgiven, even expected.

Instead, the team dug deep, won their opening two games and finished top of the group ahead of their better-prepared...

Gernot Rohr confirmed as Nigeria's technical adviser

Gernot Rohr has agreed to move to Nigeria for the role.

Nigeria have appointed Gernot Rohr as technical adviser, the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has confirmed.

Rohr, 63, who has previously coached Gabon, Niger and Burkina Faso, has signed a two-year contract and replaces Sunday Oliseh,who resigned in February. The German was appointed after the NFF's failed attempt to secure the services Paul Le Guen last month. 

"I am enthusiastic to get to work," Rohr said. "This is a big challenge because Nigeria has big players everywhere and has...
