Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr has urged his players to remain humble after a 3-2 win over the Mediterranean Knights of Libya in their second leg 2019 Africa Cup of Nations(AFCON) qualifier
Odion Ighalo who scored a hat-trick to give the Super Eagles a comfortable 4-0 win over Libya at home was at it again as he produced a brace in Sfax as Nigeria recorded a narrow win.
The result means that the Super Eagles are now top of their qualification group after the Bafana Bafana of South were held to a goalless draw away at Seychelles.
Speaking after the nervy encounter with Libya in Tunisia, Rohr revealed that his team could have done better as he insisted on a better defence just as he did after the first leg.
He was not happy that his team squandered a 2-0 lead only to recover to victory later in the game.

He said, “I congratulate my team for this victory. It was a huge test of our character. We lost a 2 goal lead but fought hard instead of dropping our heads.
“We will stay humble because we have not qualified for AFCON yet. We keep fighting.”
