After recording back to back wins over Seychelles and Egypt in four days, Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr believes his team is sixty-nine percent prepared for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Super Eagles defeated the Pirates of Seychelles 3-1 in their final 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match in Asaba last Friday and edged Egypt 1-0 on Tuesday thanks to a wonderful strike from Paul Onuachu eight seconds into the game.
Rohr said in his post-match interview it is good that his team could defeat a great team like Egypt. He however called for more improvement.
Rohr qualified the Super Eagles for the AFCON tournament billed to hold from June 15th to 13th July in Egypt with a game to spare having missed out on the last two editions. He however ruled out inviting new players to the team ahead of the forthcoming AFCON.
Rohr recently handed debut invitation to Paul Onuachu, Valentine Ozornwafor, Ikouwen Udoh and David Okereke to the senior national team but assured that he will continue to scout for more players for the team.
