Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr said his 2-0 loss to Madagascar was his “wild card” at the Africa Africa Cup in 2019. Nigeria lost 2-0 to Barea at Alexandria Stadium, in their last meeting in Group B almost two weeks ago.
The men of Rohr have left behind the defeat and will face Algeria in the semifinals on Sunday. “The defeat against Madagascar was our prankster. “We could lose it because we had already qualified for the next round.
“We wanted to allow others on the team to play, too. “We can forget the defeat of Madagascar now because we are in the semifinals.” Even defeat helped us to be more humble and, at times, it’s also good, “Rohr told the media.
