Meanwhile, head coach Gernot Rohr, has reacted to the 1-1 draw with the Democratic Republic of Congo on Monday.
“It was a very good match because we played against a very good team from Congo. They came with a great squad,” Rohr told reporters in Port Harcourt after the game.
“The game was a good test for the players particularly those who we didn’t know very well. I’m satisfied with the performance of Simy. He is a natural centre forward. He didn’t have a profile until we found him,” he added.
