Nigeria vs Tunisia: Rohr reveals what he told Super Eagles players before playoff

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has said he told his players to go all out for victory, in their Africa Cup of Nations third-place playoff against Tunisia on Wednesday.

Odion Ighalo’s early goal ensured that Nigeria clinched a record-extending bronze.

For Rohr, it made up for the disappointment of losing in the last minute to Algeria in the semi-final.

“I told my players that it would be better to end with a win than a loss.

“We were disappointed at not making the final, but ending with a win is a good thing,” the German told a press conference after the match.
