I expected this scenario: Nigeria’s Rohr

Sun, Jun. 23, 2019
CAIRO - 23 June 2019:Nigeria’s coach, Gernot Rohr, assured that he expected the scenario of his team encounter against Burundi on Saturday.

Nigeria beat Burundi 1-0 thanks to OdionIghalo’s goal in the 77th minute.

“It was a very difficult match for us because this team of Burundi is very organised. Olivier - the coach, I know him very well and he has a lot of experience,” Rohr said after the game.

“They also qualified from a tough group that has Gabon, Mali and they come through. We saw the games, they were unbeaten in the qualifiers.

“It was not easy, especially very difficult to score the first goal. If the first goal is not coming quickly, you suffer and you have to work hard to score and to win the matches.


Egypt defeated Zimbabwe 1-0 in the opening game, Uganda beat DRC 2-0. And the most amusing match was between Madagascar & Guinea which was ended with a 2-2 draw.

Group winners and runners-up qualify for the knockout second round along with the best four of the six third-place finishers.
