Top dog coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has claimed the squad missed the duo of Alex Iwobi and Wilfred Ndidi, as they lost 1-0 to Central African Republic in a 2022 World Loving cup qualifier on Thur.
Despite dominating play against the Wild Beasts, Nigeria suffered a offend defeat at Teslim Balogun Stadium.
Karl Namnganda’s 90th-minute elbow grease proved to be the winner, as CAR claimed their first off points of the series.
“The players are still disappointed in the dressing room and still not understanding why we could lose this match.
“When we analyzed it, we dominated possession of the ball, we had several opportunities to score but we did not score and rattling often in football, there was a counter and our opponents scored.
“Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, we lost. We had the opportunity to score but we couldn’t.
“We have to recover, and we have to create some changes in the squad. We missed the inventiveness of Iwobi, we also missed Ndidi so much.
“It was not like shooting fish in a barrel for [Frank] Onyeka and a first-timer [Taiwo] Awoniyi to come up in this squad,” Rohr told Goal.
