The loss was the first under manager, Rohr since his 2016 even though the Super Eagles are presently placed third in Group E behind Libya and South Africa.
However, Aikhuomogbe who spoke with Soccernet.com.ng revealed that the result would only be a wake-up call for both the technical crew and the players ahead of their subsequent qualifying games later in the year.
“You can’t really blame anyone for Nigeria’s 2-0 loss to South Africa considering the fact that the South African team played a good football more than our team,” Aikhuomogbe told Soccernet.com.ng
“Besides, this will be a wake-up call for the team before facing a team like Cameroon on August in a 2018 World Cup qualifier.”
