Super Eagles Head Coach Gernot Rohr has singled out Samuel Chukwueze and Moses Simon for praise after the draw with Brazil in the international friendly on Sunday.
Moses set up Joe Aribo for the games opener, but the Wingers did more to keep Brazil’s attacking prowess on the wings in check.
Rohr lauded his team’s fighting spirit and solidarity for the duration, despite Brazil leveling in the second half through midfielder Casemiro.
The 66 year-old insists the Eagles gave their more flamboyant opponents “problems” despite conceding possession to the South Americans.
“The team did very well, big solidarity, because Brazil wanted to win the game,” Rohr told thenff.com
“They scored very early in the second half and when they scored we had another 44 minutes to play, so, it was really not easy but with a lot of solidarity, fighting spirit and also counter attacks especially our wingers; they were very strong today, and we gave them problems.”
