And speaking on NFF TV, Rohr said:”It was good reaction from my team. We lost the other day very unlucky, the last minute so everybody wanted to take revenge. They did it very well we could have scored a third or fourth goal.

“We change the system, we played with three at the back and I think it helped us and also the leadership of Musa to win this game.

“It was not easy to beat Central African Republic, we saw it. They made a lot of fouls but fortunately we don’t have any big injury now we can prepare for the next games in November with calmness and I hope everything will be fine at the end of the day.”

He went on to thank Nigerians for their continued support for the team.

He added:”Nobody was in the stadium but our fans who watched on TV thanks for your support all the time. We have a young team that can make mistakes like it happened the other day but they never give up.”

The Eagles next game in the qualifiers is away to Liberia on November 11.

  • which kind young team this man always talk about ?

      May God bless you ooo. Young team everyday. If we don’t qualify during play-off (God forbids) he has that young team as ready made excuse.

      That avalanche of stars, he restricted them to all workers and no play makers. Aribo had been used as a slave and caged in the DM position, meanwhile he has the acumen to give defence splitting passes. A better version of Ejuke. Thank God we won with finesse for once. In the play offs, there will be no room for CAR miasma. Peace Y’all

       
  • Coach please next time infect your players with urgency no matter the opponent…… unleash them to attack relentlessly and score loads of goals…….We don’t just need to beat this minors but we need to beat them with a high score margin and scoring early to extinguish any hope in them……Coach Rhor.I believe in you because you have steadied the team and you have been managing the team well even with all the distraction of unpaid allowee……. Please don’t underate any team next time and make sure you always sort for improvement in your team……creat competition in your team and bring in new faces from time to time…….I want to also thank you for inviting and capping Awoniyi it shows you follow the trend and thats a good sign…….Good game Rhor.

    Can this man stop calling the team ‘young team ‘

    You need to master the 3-5-2 system very well because with this again, we would defeat the Liberians. Stop calling your team a young team, it gives other teams the willpower to hurt us.

    We can clearly see that Super Eagles is bigger than Oga Rohr.

    We were playing against CAR and the coach said this what of when we are playing the likes of Algeria and other top teams at the Afcon, what will happen then?

    Young shall grow is what am hearing but I have never heard of my team is young and never grew.

    How market Oga Rohr followers. What can we call this now. Well, I am still waiting to hear from NFF tonight as I said on the other trend.

    Your time is up Oga Rohr and the entire coaching crew.

    We hire and we fire. We appreciate you and your efforts. It’s time to say goodbye to Nigerian football Oga Rohr. God bless Nigeria!!!

      How market…?? You are blind you cant see we are still toping our group with 2 point lead abi…? In the day of your guadiolas once we drop points gbam we find ourselves in 3rd position and start chasing qualification by favours and wild cards…..but Rohr will drop 3 or 4 points and will still be leading the group with at least 2 points…..LMAOOoo

      Afoju.

    Cape verde just edged liberia at the last minute same way they won liberia at the last minute in the previous match. Cape verde are now on 7pts, while 9ja on 9pt. The group is getting very interesting.

      I love it that way….even though I would have loved it more if we had picked 6 points out of 6 as I envisaged.

      However, I love it when we are kept on our toes. We get unserious when we are comfortable. Since our players have allowed complacency to push them to this point of no-slack, then they should deal with it till the end. But bye and large I trust we will now start approaching our matches with seriousness and zero room for overconfidence and complacency…and I hope that spirit follows us into the play offs. We hopefully would still be in the top 5 in Africa by then.
