World Cup Qualifiers: Cape Verde draw was like a victory for Super Eagles – Rohr

 Regardless of the outcome against the Blue Sharks, the Super Eagles handler was pleased to see his team progress

Nigeria’s 1-1 draw against Cape Verde in Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier was like a win, according to coach Gernot Rohr.

Heading for the last Group C game against Bubista’s men, the three-time African champions knew that victory or a draw would power them into the third round.

Like a house on fire, the Super Eagles took an early lead through Napoli star Victor Osimhen in the first minute, while Stopira levelled matters four minutes later after profiting from an assist from Kenny Santos.
