Nigeria’s Super Eagles on Saturday at the Goodswill Akpabio Stadium, lost 0-2 to Bafana Bafana of South Africa, thereby kicking off their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign on a losing note.
The win is South Africa’s first over Nigeria in a competitive game in 13 attempts.
It was also Gernot Rohr’s first competitive match as Super Eagles coach.
Nigerians are obviously heartbroken by the loss. Some took to Twitter to share some opinion abiut Rohr and the “bad history” he has made.
Rohr’s 1st defeat as Eagles coach is a memorable & historic one. Loosing for the 1st time against S.Africa in a competitive match #NGARSA
Rohr Finally Clears South Africa’s Doubts Over Nigeria…Makes History By Allowing South Africa Beat In Nigeria In a Competitive game!
Please tell rohr that isn’t inter-house sports game between green house vs yellow house. He should stop using our u20 team @RadioPaparazi
#NGARSANGARSA I think I have this respect for Gernot Rohr lately but today he actually proved 2 m dt he is nt tactically sound
Pre-match talk was all- Rohr’s 100% record & eagles unbeaten record against the S/Africans but we forgot S/A are unbeaten since 2015.
