Nigeria remain top of Africa World Cup qualifying Group B thanks to a 3-1 victory over Algeria in Uyo on Saturday.
With the new German coach Rohr, he really has put a lot of work into the team duo he has got the best players he has being able to put them together and made them very useful with their win over Algeria I think he is here to take the eagles back to their glory days but he still got work to do with their defence
A double from Victor Moses with efforts from John Obi Mikel were all the Super Eagles needed to tear apart the visitors at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium.Moses currently in his Chelsea form and being what he was predicted to be, he is gradually becoming the jay jay that Nigeria needed.
The result heaps the pressure on Algeria, whose winless run in the qualifying series extended to two matches.
Mikel, who was included in the starting line-up turned in a great display to inspire his team to victory.
After a keenly contested opening minute, Moses took centre stage after 25th minutes with a ferocious strike past goalkeeper Raïs M'Bolhi after a one-to pass with a teammate.
Yacine Brahimi missed an excellent chance to level before John Obi Mikel put the Super Eagles two goals up with three minutes to the half time break. The Chelsea midfielder profited from a terrible defensive play by Aïssa Mandi, showing good composure with a calm finish.
Algeria reduced the arrears early in the second half through Nabil Bentaleb – whose sizzler beat a hapless Daniel Akpeyi in goal for Gernot Rohr’s men.
But Moses restored their two-goal lead in the closing stages of the game and, somewhat inevitably, it was Moses who got the goal, as he latched onto a slide-rule pass from substitute Ahmed Musa and fired past M'Bolhi with his left foot.
With this victory, Nigeria lead Group B with six points – four points ahead of Cameroon who were held to a 1-1 draw by Zambia.
The Super Eagles host Cameroon in their next game on 28 August , 2017.which gives them more time to train and to learn from their defensive errors
