Coach of Central Africa Republic (CAR) Raoul Savoy says the Super Eagles of Nigeria don’t have what it takes to qualify for the 2022 World Cup after losing 0-2 at home in the qualifiers.
Goals from Leon Balogun and Victor Osimhen condemned his team to defeat but the coach is defiant that his team were undone by poor officiating alleging that both goals scored by Nigeria shouldn’t have stood.
He faulted the performance of the referee saying he helped the Super Eagles win as he was the 12th man in the Nigerian team that played against his side.“My players did well and I’m very proud of their performance,” he said in his post-match analysis.
“Nigeria played with 12 men because the referee helped them to win. The first goal was from an offside position and my goalkeeper was fouled for the second goal.
“We did not concede against Nigeria over the two legs, they scored with the help of the referee”, he said.
Asked if he thinks Nigeria has what it takes to go all the way to the World Cup, the coach said the Super Eagles don’t look like a team that can pull through even if they make it to the final stage of the qualifiers.
” I am not sure they have what it takes to be at the World Cup. We were better than them over two legs. In Africa there are teams who will get a good result against them with ease”, he concluded.
