“Being the first into the round of 16 is a joy for us.” – Gernot Rohr (Manager of Nigeria Football Team).
Nigeria is the first team to gain six points in the group stages and to qualify for the knockouts in the Africa Cup of Nations 2019. They defeated Burundi on the second day of the AFCON 2019 and Guinea yesterday to claim the unruly spot of the knockouts.
Their manager, Gernot Rohr, expressed his happiness and satisfaction towards the team in Nigeria vs Guinea post-match interview.
“It was a good performance from the team today. We played really well even though it was a tough game from Guinea.”
“I am happy we could deal with the danger they posed and being the first into the round of 16 is a joy for us.”
“Now we have to ensure we finish off well against Madagascar in our last game to top the pool.”
Nigeria, although qualified for the knockouts, will face Madagascar this Sunday evening to claim the pinnacle of Group B. Contrarily, Madagascar’s fate hangs like a thread in this match where they can end up in any of the top 3 spots of the group where only top 2 will go further in the Africa Cup of Nations 2019.
