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.
