The Super Eagles were held to a 1-1 draw in their last Group E encounter with South Africa at the FNB Stadium in that country on Saturday.
Despite conquering Africa in 2013, the Super Eagles surprisingly failed to qualify for the 2015 and 2017 finals.
The West Africans experienced heat and humidity at Soccer City, but managed to seal a place in Cameroon with one round of matches still to play. “We knew it will be a hard game it was very hot we arrived yesterday morning without sleeping in the night and second half was very hard”, Rohr said after the game. “We knew South Africa wanted to try and win the game and I think they played very well”, he added.
Nigeria always looked unsafe with their forays and they were the most likely to find the breakthrough, which came nine minutes into the game when Bafana defender Buhle Mkhwanazi deflected Kalu Ojim’s cross past keeper Itumeleng Khune. I hope to see him in a big team in Europe, in England or the championship.
“The second choice goalkeeper Ezenwa had a good game”.
“I don’t criticise the referee but maybe our captain was too fast technically for the linesman”.
Mr Okowa, who spoke through his Chief of Staff, Tam Brisibe, stated, “This is momentous bearing in mind that the flight successfully took the Super Eagles to South Africa and came back without hitches”. “I think they will be with us in Cameroon”, said Rohr.
South Africa beat the Super Eagles when the two nations met in the first round in Nigeria in June a year ago, but had to fight back this time to get a single point.
A statement issued by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), said the President joined millions of football-loving Nigerians in commending the team for their spirited and disciplined performance against a very formidable opponent which earned them qualification with the final match against Seychelles a mere formality.
Libya defeated Seychelles 8-1 in the other match in the pool earlier on Saturday.
