Dissapointed Rohr says Eagles lost due to lack of experience

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr says he is not pleased with the result, but emphasized that his team lost due to lack of experience.

Nigeria crashed out of the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia following their 2-1 loss to Argentina at the Saint Petersburg Stadium.

A 86-minute strike from Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo terminated the Eagles’ World Cup dream.

Speaking after the game he said:

“We are disappointed. My young team was missing a little experience to handle the final minutes. I’m proud of my time. We have to accept.”

Rohr believes the Eagles have learnt a lot and will be ready for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

“This kind of matches builds the character of a team. They’ll learn. The World Cup has come a bit early. In 4 years, they’ll learn.”
