Nigeria head coach Gernot Rohr is happy with his striking options ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals.

The German tactician masterminded the Super Eagles' 1-0 win over Egypt in an international friendly match which was played in Nigeria earlier this week.

Lanky striker Paul Onuachu scored with a thunderous shot just a one minute into the game which was played at the Stephen Keshi Stadium.

“We have other profiles for the striker position, we now have this tall guy from Denmark. He did very well but he has to improve still," Rohr said.

“We had five changes in the team, the goalkeepers came in and we finished with two local players that made their debuts.

The 65-year-old trainer is happy with how his players performed during the FIFA international break.

"It will be good for them, for their confidence and for the careers of the players," he added.

“I am happy about it also because our 23 players did very well for the past ten days in Asaba."
