Nigeria national team coach Gernot Rohr has expressed his satisfaction with the Super Eagles’ 0-0 draw against Sierra Leone on Tuesday, Goal.Com reports.
The three-time African champions laboured to a second consecutive draw against the 120th-ranked team in the world in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game.
He recently revealed that Nigerians must know that there are no more minors in African football and all teams are quality now.
According to him, he is happy that the draw vs Sierra Leone kept Nigeria at the top of the table, so his team just needs to focus on the matches vs Benin and Lesotho.
He added that the nation is very close to qualification, but he surely expects tougher matches ahead.
His words, “It’s a long time that we had a goalless defence and we wanted to be solid after what happened in the second half the other day and I am especially very happy for our goalkeeper who showed to everybody that he is a good one,” Rohr told the media, according to The InfoStride.
