Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr has been paid N32m ($15,000) for guiding Nigeria to qualification to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Rohr led the Super Eagles to four wins and two draws (one of the draws was ruled to be a loss as punishment for fielding a suspended player) during the group stage of the qualifiers.

Rohr led the Super Eagles to victories over Zambia (twice), Algeria, and Cameroon in the group stage of the qualifiers.

Rohr is the fourth foreign coach to manage the Super Eagles of Nigeria to the FIFA World Cup.
