Gernot Rohr says the Super Eagles players are disappointed after going down 1-0 to the Central African Republic in the FIFA World Cup qualifying game.
The Central Africans pulled off a shocking by ending Nigeria’s 41 years unbeaten home record World Cup qualifiers at home.
“The players are still disappointed in the dressing room and still not understanding why we could lose this match,” he said.
“When we analyzed it, we dominated possession of the ball, we had several opportunities to score but we did not score, and very often in football, there was a counter and our opponents scored.”
On the return leg in Cameroon next week, the German tactician said he is confident the boys will recover for the game.
“Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, we lost. We had the opportunity to score but we couldn’t.
“We have to recover, and we have to make some changes in the team.”
