SUPER Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr has admitted that his team lost to a better side in the semifinals of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt on Sunday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that a Riyad Mahrez’s goal from a free-kick at the edge of the box, with seconds left to play, condemned Nigeria to a 2-1 defeat and steered Algeria to their first AFCON Final match in 29 years.

Rohr told newsmen during a post-match interview that it was a game of two halves, adding however that Algeria was the better side at the end of the day.

“Until the last minute, Algeria had a better first half than us, but we came back a much better team in the second half.
