Super Eagles want to continue winning, Gernot Rohr has said. He recently revealed this after the victory versus Cape Verde on Tuesday evening.
According to him, overpowering the host was definitely not an easy task but he is now focusing on maintaining the winning streak.
Rohr added that coming from behind in the game was very difficult however, he is happy his boys recovered well.
His words, “It was a very difficult game for us because Cape Verde are a very good team, we played on a synthetic pitch and we had to pick a new team after the first match against Liberia.”
“It was not easy, all in three days to pick another team but in Nigeria, we have players everywhere all over the world as you could see.”
“We are happy to win because it is not easy when you concede the first goal and you play away with other conditions, it’s not easy to come back, against a good team.”
“For the second goal, we made good pressing and the defender wanted to do a pass to his goalkeeper and we took advantage of that. We want to continue winning our games and to play well.”
“Bonke and Kingsley played their first game with us, you know Bonke did very well at his club, Malmo as they qualified for the Champions League so we had him already in our scout list and the opportunity came when we lost all our midfielders.”
“Kingsley, who is also a starting player at Bologna. They did very well. At the beginning of the match, we missed the harmony in the midfield because it was the first time, but they did the job very well.”
“And I think they played very well in a professional way and friendly spirit.”
