Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has admitted that his team lost to Madagascar, because of complacency.

Nigeria were stunned 2-0 in their final Group B fixture at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations, a result that means they finished in second place.

“Madagascar were the better team but the first goal was a wonderful gift to them.

“We misplaced simple passes and were poor perhaps because subconsciously we already were thinking about the next round. We have to do better in our next game.

“It’s normal to change the team when one has already qualified. I wanted to rest the team and give others the opportunity to play. It is not a shame to lose against them because they were the first to qualify for the AFCON in October,” the German told a post-match press conference.

Rohr also said Madagascar stand a good chance of winning the tournamen.

“They can do it but I have to focus on my team so that we can do better,” he added.
