Super Eagles technical adviser Gernot Rohr has commended his players despite their 1-0 defeat to African rivals Cameroon in an international friendly played in Austria, Friday.
A lone goal by Andre Anguissa’s from about 30 yards out in the 37th minute ensured the Indomitable Lions avenged their AFCON 2019 defeat to Nigeria.
Reacting to this, the German-born coach believes the result was meaningless compared to the impact the game had on his players.
He added that, it was interesting seeing some new players show the quality they are made of, adding that his men had six shots on target while the opponents played just three.
In his words: “The most important thing is not the result because it was just a test match. It was interesting to see some new players because we had to manage the situation and we did well, I think we had 17 shots on the goal while Cameroon only had three, they had only one on target which was the goal and we had six in the target.
“Like I said, the result is not the most important thing in a friendly, the most important thing is to learn, to see some interesting things, to test some new players and to see what we want to do in September for the World Cup qualifiers,” he added.
