Nigeria 0-1 CAR: 2 Errors Gernot Rohr Committed Against The Central African Republic

Super Eagles of Nigeria suffered their first defeat in their 2022 World Cup Qualifying campaign against the Central African Republic this evening.

The three times African champions lost 1-0 in the match that was played at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos. 

Karl Namganda scored the only goal of the game in the 90th minutetime to seal the win for the Central African Republic 

The victory also ended Nigeria's unbeaten run in the qualification stage of the qualifiers. 

Meanwhile we would be looking at three mistakes the Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles committed that resulted in the defeat against the low rated side. 

1. Inability to read his opponent tactics: from what we have seen in the game, it appears the coach didn't have a clear understanding of the Central African Republic side. Perhaps he might have thought his team would have the game easy. 

2. Late introduction of Ahmed Musa: The team's captain was introduced into the game less than 20 before before the end of the match. Musa came on to replace Joe Aribo who was ineffective at the front. Immediately Musa came on board, we saw how he caused a lot of troubles for the Central African Republic defense. Early introduction of Musa would have changed the story.

What other error do you think the coach made that caused the defeat? Kindly share your thoughts below the comments section.
