Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr says the Super Eagles remain on course for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but insists there is still some way to go.
The Super Eagles ensured they remained top of Group B with six points following the 3-1 win against Algeria in Uyo as Zambia cancelled out hosts Cameroon in Limbe.
Rohr praised his team for a good showing in the first 45 minutes, but also admitted it was a tough going for them after the break.
Meanwhile, Algeria coach Georges Leekens has remained defiant about the chances of his team despite sitting five points below leaders Nigeria.
Leekens believes only an absence of ‘efficiency’ cost his side a positive result against Nigeria.
