Rohr hails Eagles positive attitude In win over South Africa

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr says his players showed great attitude in their AFCON 2019 quarterfinal win against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa at the Cairo International Stadium on Wednesday.

Rohr also acknowledges the support of the home fans who came out in large numbers to support the Super Eagles in the game.

The three-time winners outplayed the Bafana Bafana for the majority of the game in what was unarguably their best performance of the competition so far.

The win meant the Super Eagles have now reached the semifinals of the AFCON finals for the 15th time in 18 appearances.

Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze put the Super Eagles ahead in the 27th minute, scoring after receiving a pass from Alex Iwobi.

Bongani Zungu levelled scores for South Africa in the 68th minute with a header that gave Daniel Akpeyi no chance.

William Troost-Ekong however scored the winning goal a minute before halftime.
