Super Eagles technical adviser Gernot Rohr has praised the performance of his boys after they secured passage into the round 16 at the ongoing 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
The former Champions are the first team to do so in this year’s edition, after securing maximum six points from two games played so far in Group B.
The Super Eagles followed up their narrow win over Burundi, with another 1-0 over the Syli Nacionale of Guinea on Wednesday to remain on top of Group B.
In his reaction to the result, Rohr expressed satisfaction with his team’s display against Paul Put side and he is now aiming to end their group outing on a high against Madagascar on Sunday.
“It was a good performance from the team today, we played really well though it was a tough game from Guinea,” Rohr said after the game.
“I am happy we could deal with the danger they posed and being the first into the round of 16 is a joy for us.
“Now we have to ensure we finish off well against Madagascar in our last game to top the pool.”
Nigeria will trade tackles with Madagascar in their final Group B game at the Alexandria Stadium on June 30.
