Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has come out to say that he is looking forward to a harder challenge from Cape Verde when both nations meet for their second 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifying fixture. He recently revealed that he was happy with his team’s performance at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.
According to him, Nigerian players will have to be very ready for the clash ahead because it will not be an easy ride at this stage of qualifiers.
He added that Super Eagles just need to put in another superb performance to be on the safe side.
His words, “Job has been done, we had to win our first game at home and we didn’t want to concede a goal, also to show that now we are stable behind, so for four or five games now we didn’t concede a goal.”
“We knew some of our players have to leave after the match and they had to do well before leaving because they cannot go to Cape Verde.”
“We scored our two goals in the first half and we were calm and played our football but under difficult conditions because after the rain, the pitch was not easy to play for the two teams but we had to adapt under the circumstances.”
