Gernot Rohr has called on the Super Eagles to put the semi final defeat against Algeria behind them and finish the competition on a high.
Super Eagles were subjected to a painful 2-1 defeat to the Desert Foxes and the Nigerian side will be looking to redeem their image against Tunisia in the third place playoffs.
Rohr urged his team to stay focused on their next match against the Carthage Eagles and added that team has a promising future despite the slip up.

“I worked in Tunisia but on the pitch this means nothing. Both teams have similar ambitions and many young players who would like to win.
“Alain Giresse is an experienced coach and I’m always happy to play against him.
“When you are one of the four best teams in the continent this is a good result and we have to build on it. This is a team with a brilliant future.
“We will keep focused on the third-place playoff and hope to sign off with a happy result,” he told the media.
