Afcon 2019: South Africa played better than Nigeria, Rohr concedes

The German coach believes Bafana Bafana gave his side a good fight despite their elimination from the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations
Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr acknowledged luck was on his team’s side as they edged past South Africa in Cairo.Rohr rung the changes from the team that subdued Cameroon and triumphed with goals from Samuel Chukwueze and William Troost-Ekong.
For Stuart Baxter’s men, they dominated possession but failed to get the goals as Ronwen Williams’ howler cost Bafana Bafana a chance to reach the semi-final.
