Nigeria vs Argentina: Rohr speaks on Super Eagles’ exit from 2018 World Cup
Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr has blamed inexperience for their exit from the 2018 World Cup.
Nigeria needed to avoid defeat against Argentina in their last Group D fixture on Tuesday, but lost 2-1 to the South Americans.
Lionel Messi scored his first goal of the tournament, before Victor Moses equalized from the penalty spot in the second half.
However, Marcos Rojo lashed in the winner in the dying minutes, to send his country through to the round of 16, where they face France.
“We are disappointed. My young team was missing a little experience to handle the final minutes. I’m proud of my time. We have to accept.
“This kind of matches builds the character of a team. They’ll learn. The World Cup has come a bit early. In 4 years, they’ll learn,” Rohr told the media afterwards.
