Super Eagles Head Coach, Gernot Rohr is delighted that his team beat one of the pre-tournament favourites to win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, Egypt and he stated that is indeed a great match, according to reports by Footballlive.ng.
According to Rohr: ”It was not a good match but a great match, when you play against such a team like Egypt which is for me one of the favourites for the AFCON and you can win the game, it is a great match for us,”
”All the time we have to improve but let us at first enjoy this wonderful result, they did so well, we scored a wonderful goal so let us enjoy and then we will analyze tomorrow this game and work on the things we have to make better.
What is interesting in Asaba is we had three wonderful victories, the first one against Seychelles, it was very hot, that’s why we played at 6 pm today, it was better for the quality of football for the two teams.”
The 1-0 victory was Nigeria’s first win over Egypt in 29 years.
