Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, has urged his squad to step up their play as they face Tunisia in a friendly on Tuesday.
The coach echoed this after Super Eagles lost 1-0 to Algeria on Friday in what was termed “a lackluster match by the Eagles”.
The defeat also ended the fine form of the three-time African champions, who had been unbeaten in their previous five games.
The West Africans were also without their regular goalkeepers Daniel Akpeyi, Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Francis Uzoho in the encounter.
He was quoted as saying:
“We definitely must put up a greater effort against the Tunisians,” Rohr told the media.
“It is an opportunity for some of the players to rise up to the occasion, stake a claim. They are ready to go and I believe we would see a much better game on Tuesday.”
