Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has expressed satisfaction with the performance of his team against Liberia.

The Eagles kicked off their Group C Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers with a 2-0 win against Liberia at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Friday.

First half brace from Kelechi Iheanacho helped the three-time AFCON winners to the perfect start.

The win put the Eagles top on the standing with Cape Verde and Central Africa Republic on a point each.

And reacting to the win, Rohr said:”Job has been done, we had to win our first game at home and we didn’t want to concede a goal also to show that now we are stable behind, so for four or five games now we didn’t concede a goal.

“We knew some of our players have to leave after the match and they had to do well before leaving because they cannot go to Cape Verde.

“We scored our two goals in the first half and we were calm and played our football but under difficult conditions because after the rain the pitch was not easy to play for the two teams but we had to adapt under the circumstances.

“Nine players are leaving so there will be another team. It’s not easy to beat another team in only two days and also to play on synthetic pitch especially after playing on a dry grass.”

And on the next game against Cape Verde, the German admits it will be tougher the clash with Liberia.

“Now we have to beat another team so it’s a challenge for the staff and the players. But we have to show our solidarity and for the players coming in now, who will be 20 going for the game. We will have to manage the situation and I believe our team will put in another good performance even knowing it will be a more difficult game than Liberia.”
