Former Super Eagles player, Justice Christopher has defended coach Genort Rohr following the Eagles unimpressive showing at the just ended friendlies against Algeria and Tunisia.

Speaking to, Christopher said that Rohr has shown his capabilities by qualifying the Senior national team to several competitions (the Nations Cup and the World Cup) earlier in his Super Eagles tenure.

"So far for me, I think he has done well qualifying the Super Eagles team to major competitions, and I don’t think he should be judged by two friendly matches coming out of a pandemic season."

"We should give him a little bit of time by getting more of the new players, it is not as easy as we think,” he said.
