Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, has attributed Tuesday’s below par performance of the team against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone to the poor condition of the pitch at the Siaka Stevens stadium, Freetown.
The Super Eagles settled for a goalless draw against the Leone Stars in the reverse fixture of their matchday Group L 2021 AFCON qualifier. The draw, however, saw the Eagles remain top with eight points after four games, while Sierra Leone are third with three points.
Reflecting on the game on the team’s official Twitter account, Rohr praised the performance of his players, singling out Maduka Okoye for being the most impressive, and lamenting the long ball tactics used by the home team which scuttled the efforts of the Eagles’ to secure the much needed three points.
