Nigeria national team coach Gernot Rohr has lifted the lid on why he makes late substitutions in games.

Most of the substitutions by the German tactician often take place towards the end of the match.

The Super Eagles boss, however, disclosed his decision was to ensure he does not make mistakes and gives ample time for the players in the starting XI to make an impact.

“I always try to give the starting XI enough time to express themselves,” Rohr told the media. “I also have to be very sure that the player I want to take off has done all he can during his time on the field of play.”

Nigeria defeated Benin Republic 2-1 courtesy of goals from Victor Osimhen and Samuel Kalu on Wednesday evening.

The three-time African champions will thereafter travel to Setsoto Stadium to slug it out with Lesotho in their second group match on Sunday. (Goal)
