Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr says his boys have learned their lesson and will avenge the defeat against Central African Republic in Sunday’s reverse fixture in Douala,
Rohr’s team lost 0-1 to the Wild Beasts at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos on Thursday.
The reverse fixture will take place at the Japoma Stadium, Douala.
Rohr is confident the Super Eagles will overcome the defeat.
“We are going there to win the game,” Rohr declared.
“We were the better team on Thursday but sometimes the better team do not win.
“They were a bit lucky to score against us, while we had a lot of chances to score. We lacked a little bit of efficiency.
“Despite the defeat, we did not deserve to lose the game.”
He added: “We must stay calm and not panic”
“We must give a big knock on the head of everybody, analyse the game and make some changes in the team.
“We have to find our winning spirit, a new motivation, because everyone is down.”
