Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is confident Nigeria will beat Sierra Leone in the return leg of a 2022 African Cup of Nations qualifier after the 1994 AFCON champions threw away a four-goal lead to draw the first leg of the match. 

“So we are doing everything in training and in the meeting, we will do, we will see again everything in the video, speak about the mistakes and I’m sure they will react because I know my team, I know what we can do, they showed it in the first half,” the German said in an interview on the Super Eagles YouTube channel.

While explaining why the Nigerian team drew the first leg of the match in Benin City on Friday despite a four-goal lead, he said the players did not maintain the energy they used in the first half of the game

“I think at half-time they believed it’s finished but it was not finished,” the former Niger Republic coach added.

He stated that the surprising draw against the Leone Stars is a lesson to the side, reiterating that “we will react, if they will be lucky or not I cannot promise you but they will fight and go there to win the match.”

The team captain, Ahmed Musa had earlier apologized to Nigerians for the result, promising that the Eagles “will correct our mistakes in the next game.”

“We know we made a very big mistake in the game but there is nothing we can do, that’s football. Sometimes we win and sometimes we lose,” the former Leicester City star added.

The Super Eagles will travel to Freetown for the return leg on Tuesday, November 17, 2020. (Channels TV)
