Super eagles coach Gernot Rohr has told his players they need to step up their game to make Nigerians happy after the uninspiring one nil defeat to Algeria.

The Franco-German tactician admits the absence of a number of first-team stars weakened the texture of his band, but has challenged the squad to up the ante and show vibrancy especially against the 2004 African champions, Tunisia.

“We definitely must put up a greater effort against the Tunisians. It is an opportunity for some of the players to rise up to the occasion, stake a claim. They are ready to go and I believe we would see a much better game on Tuesday.”

All 24 players in camp were involved in Monday evening’s training session, and are available for selection.

Tunisia have not beaten Nigeria in a competitive game since the 2004 AFCON that they hosted, when they edged the Super Eagles on penalty shoot-out after both teams tied 1-1 in regulation and extra time at the Stade Olympique in Rades, outside Tunis.
