Coach Gernot Rohr is confident that the Super Eagles will begin their bounce back from their defeat against the Central African Republic.

Rohr watched his side go down 1-0 at home to the visitors in their third World Cup qualifying match on Thursday.

The defeat cut Nigeria’s lead on top of Group C to just two points after three matches, but they will have another chance to avenge the defeat when both sides clash again on Sunday, and Rohr is confident they will grab it.

“The central African Republic were well organized but we are still ahead in the group and in three days’ time, I believe we will be able to win the match,” he continued.

“It will not be in Central Africa, it will be in Cameroon and on a very good pitch.

“Also, I think the fighting spirit of the team is still there. I hope in the next game, we will be luckier than today,” he said.

Nigeria remains top of the Group with six points. They are followed by Cape Verde and the Central African Republic with four points each.
