Rohr plays down Eagles loss to Cameroon
Gernot Rohr has played down the Super Eagles 1-0 defeat to Cameroon in Friday’s international friendly in Austria stating it is not important but how the team fared overall.
Rohr stated this on the Super Eagles Media after the game.
Despite bossing the game in the early stages, it was Cameroon who took the lead through Andre Anguissa.
It was Cameroon’s first win against the Eagles since the final of the AFCON 2000.
The Eagles will have the opportunity to make amends when both teams clash again on Tuesday.
“The most important thing is not the result because it was just a test match,” Rohr said. “It was interesting to see some new players because we had to manage the situation and we did well, I think we had 17 shots on the goal while Cameroon only had three, they had only one on target which was the goal and we had six in target.
“Like I said, the result is not the most important thing in a friendly, the most important thing is to learn, to see some interesting things, to test some new players and to see what we want to do in September for the World Cup qualifiers.
