AFCON 2019: Madagascar Was Our Joker - Rohr

First goal for Nigeria excites Chukwueze

First goal for Nigeria excites Chukwueze

However, the players earned nothing after they suffered a shock 2-0 defeat in their final group game against debutants Madagascar.

The duo and Francis Uzoho are the only Super Eagles players yet to play in the tournament despite Rohr's rotation strategy.

The Super Eagles finished top of a section including 2017 African champions Cameroon and Algeria on the road to Russian Federation past year, defeating the Desert Foxes 3-1 at home before a 1-1 draw in the return fixture. They were singing and dancing, they help us a lot.

Nigeria face Algeria in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals at Cairo International Stadium, hoping to draw level with Egypt and Ghana with the joint-highest appearances in the final of the competition.

Oil baron, Otedola has recently been involved in a number of commendable interventions for ailing former Nigerian worldwide players, including 1980 AFCON winning team's captain, Christian Chukwuemeka Chukwu and goalkeeper Peter Fregene. It's good that Egyptian fans came out to support us.

The continent's richest man Aliko Dangote has promised to pay the Super Eagles $50 000 (R700 000) for each goal they score against the Algerians. "They were different players", recalled Belmadi.

More than 100 metres long, the new addition to the Soviet fleet could dive much deeper than American submarines at the time. These samples will be analysed in the lab, so the current results should be considered preliminary until that's done.

He observed that the Super Eagles played their last two matches with greater determination and commitment which he said was lacking when they lost 0-2 to Madagascar in their last group match.

Nigeria's Super Eagles now have even more incentive to pick up the scoring as they advance in AFCON 2019.

"All we had in our mind was winning the game and we are glad to do that at the end of the day".

"We have nine strikers in the team, played seven but we can not play all of them at the same time. We want to say thank you to them for everything".

"It is not possible to stroll to any continental title".

The stage is set for the blockbuster between the two giants of African football and Nigerian football fans won't be contented with anything less than victory over Algeria.
