The Super Eagles coah, Gernot Rohr has praised the attitude of his side after coming from behind to claim a 2-1 victory against the Republic of Benin in Wednesday’s 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifying game.
Stephane Sessegnon gave the Squirrels of Benin the lead two minutes into the match before the Super Eagles rallied back with goals from Victor Osimhen and Samuel Kalu.
Rohr was impressed with the performance of his side in the encounter and lauded the competition in his squad.
“I’m happy with the result, to come back and win. Good to see competitions among the players.”
The German tactician has also praised the hospitality received by the three-time African champions in the capital of Akwa Ibom.
“We are good everywhere in Nigeria, we had good hospitality in Asaba. But it feels good to be back in Uyo,” he added.
Nigeria will travel to Setsoto Stadium to slug it out with the Crocodiles in their second match in the qualifiers on Sunday.
