Why Super Eagles Lost – Gernot Rohr

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has explained why his team lost 2-1 to England in an international friendly match played at Wembley on Saturday.

Gary Cahill headed the hosts in front from a corner-kick, before Harry Kane made it 2-0 ahead of the half-time.

Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi pulled one back for Nigeria in the second half, as Rohr’s men improved greatly after the break.

Rohr admitted it was a game of two halves and said he made changes in personnel and formation. The German also admitted that travelling and preparation was not the best.

“Clearly it was a game of two halves. I made four changes and change in formation also made a big difference.

“Travelling and preparation was not good enough,” he told reporters after the game.
