Gernot Rohr confirms Joe Aribo’s contributions to make Super Eagles stronger


Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has admitted that Joe Aribo has made the team stronger following the Rangers midfielder’s impressive performance in last Sunday’s 1-1 friendly draw against Brazil.

Aribo scored Nigeria’s only goal of the game, his second in two appearances for the Super Eagles.

The 23-year-old received a pass from Moses Simon in the 35th minute and weaved his way past Paris Saint-Germain defender, Marquinhos before the slotting the ball home.

Aribo also scored on his debut for the three-time African champions against Ukraine last month.

The former Charlton Athletic player will look to make his home debut when the Super Eagles host neighbours, Benin Republic in a 2021 AFCON qualifier next month.
