Super Eagles Coach, Genort Rohr, has reacted after his side played out a goalless draw with Zimbabwe in an international friendly match on Saturday.
The Super Eagles drew goalless with the Warriors of Zimbabwe on Saturday in the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba, Delta State.
The game was in preparation for the African Cup of Nations to be hosted by Egypt.
Rohr who addressed a press conference after the game said, “all the players did well; there were some opportunities to score goals though none was converted.
“I am very happy about the match; it was a good test for us,” Rohr said
The friendly was the last by the Super Eagles before the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) competition in Egypt between June 21 and July 19.
The teams defied the downpour as the match kicked off at about 6 pm with both teams presenting a good account of themselves before the admiring fans.
The first and second halves saw the teams displaying their talents though there were several scoring chances for both teams which they failed to convert.
The second half saw the Eagles coach making some changes by introducing Ahmed Musa and Williams Ekong and pulling out Samuel Kalu and Omeruo Josiah.
The coach also replaced Paul Onuachu and Chukwueze Samuel with Victor Osimhen and Henry Onyekuru respectively, thereby changing the tempo of the game.
Later, Super Eagles Captain, Mikel Obi, was pulled out for John Ogu.
The Eagles last-minute effort to score was stopped by the Zimbabwe goalkeeper, Edmore Sibanda, to the admiration of the fans.
