Nigeria Vs South Africa will be a revenge encounter – Gernot Rohr


TRACKING >>Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has stated that the quarter final encounter with South Africa will be an opportunity for Nigeria to revenge the loss they suffered during the AFCON qualifications.

Both team faced each other during the qualifications which saw the Bafana Bafana of South Africa beat the Super Eagles 2-0 at the Godswill Akpabio stadium in Uyo and drew 1-1 in Johannesburg.

Speaking shortly after his squad arrived Cairo for the quarter final encounter, Gernot Rohr revealed that his priority is to proceed to the last four.

“We are here to win. It is not going to be an easy match, but surely if you have to win the Africa Cup, you will not expect to be faced with easy matches at this stage.

“We know ourselves from the qualifying campaign and it will be no holds–barred on Wednesday.

“It is not a matter of revenge; it is about reaching the semi finals,” Rohr said.
