Rohr Makes Confession After Victory Over Poland
While many are waxing lyrical that the Super Eagles have arrived with their latest win over Poland, coach of the national team, Gernot Rohr has openly confessed that the victory recorded on Friday was a lucky a one.
Victor Moses converted a second-half penalty to secure a 1-0 win away to Poland as both teams warmed up for this year's World Cup in Russia.
Speaking during the post-match conference, the coach praised his player for the victory while expressing optimism that the team will play better in their next match against Serbia in London on Tuesday.
"We were lucky to have won this game against a very solid Polish side. Poland created at least four good chances and we scored a penalty," said Gernot Rohr.
"The opponents were better in the air. But our young goalkeeper, who first played for the Nigeria national team from the beginning, did well. We won the match without our captain - Mikel John Obi. Previously, we lost against South Africa without him,” he said.
Aside from what looked like a debatable penalty that gave Nigeria the win, Poland will also be furious after they were denied what looked like a valid goal late in first half.
Leon Balogun made a goal line clearance but television replays shows that the ball might have crossed the line.
