    NFF #BringBackGeneralRoah to avoid further HUMILIATION! I never lost a match by 4-0 to any team, during my five years as coach of Nigeria” – Gernot Rohr

    Date: December 3, 2022Author: Admin0
    Erstwhile Nigeria coach, Gernot Rohr has openly criticised Nigeria’s performance against Portugal in a friendly in November.

    The three-times African champions, led by Jose Peseiro were shambolic on the night, in Lisbon. Super Eagles started the game on a low note and despite improving later, they could not stop Bruno Fernandes from scoring a brace while Goncalo Ramos and Joao Mario scored once each.

    Things went from bad to worse for Nigeria on the night, when Emmanuel Dennis missed a penalty to reduce the deficit. Peseiro admitted his team will have to improve to stand a chance of winning the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

    Reacting to the defeat, former Franco – German coach, Gernot Rohr said : “I watched the game against Portugal in Lisbon. I didn’t recognise my players at all. I wasn’t happy with how they played and the result. I never lost a match 4-0 to any team, during my five years as coach, he said to Osasu Obayiuwana.”

    “Losing 4-0 was too much, we didn’t start well in the first half, we didn’t show good organisation and we didn’t pressure the opponent. It’s true the opponent has too much quality but like I said the first half was not good but the second half was much better,” Peseiro said to NFF TV after the game.
