Victory Over Lesotho was Tougher than it Appeared – Rohr


Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr is satisfied with the team’s performance against Lesotho in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying Group L match at the Setsoto Stadium, Maseru.

The Super Eagles came from behind to beat Lesotho 4-2, to continue their blistering start to the 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifiers campaign.


Victor Osimhen was the hero, as he scored a brace and assisted twice to lead the team to victory.


Rohr, however, hinted that the Crocodiles gave his side more problems than the result of the game suggested.


“I want to thank Lesotho people for their hospitality. We know it will be difficult to play here [Maseru], Lesotho gave us a lot of troubles,” Rohr told a news conference.


“We are happy with the win. It put us in a good position to qualify for the competition.”


Meanwhile in the other Groups L game, Benin defeated Sierra Leone 1-0 on Sunday to climb to second position in the group, with three points.


Sierra Leone and Lesotho occupy third and fourth positions respectively with a point each.
