Gernot Rohr Plays Down Super Eagles Win Over Argentina

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has called for calm ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia after guiding his side to an emphatic 4-2 win over Argentina in a friendly on Tuesday.

Goals from Ever Banega and Sergio Aguero gave Argenntina a 2-0 lead after 36 minutes but a wonderful free-kick from the edge of the box by Kelechi Iheanacho two minutes from half time gave the Super Eagles a chance of a comeback in the second half.

A brace from Alex Iwobi and a goal from debutante Bryan Idowu sealed the win for the Super Eagles.

Speaking during his post-match interview, Rohr said, “It’s a good victory for us but it doesn’t mean we’ve become favourites to win the World Cup. We stay humble and realise we have more work to do.

The win took Rohr’s impreesive record in charge of the Super Eagles to seven wins, three draws and a defeat since he took charge in September 2016.
