Madjer who recently took over at the Desert Foxes’ helms led them against the Super Eagles in their final Group B encounter.
A late Yacine Brahimi penalty preserved the hosts’ pride after John Ogu's 62nd minute stunner had given Gernot Rohr’s men the lead.
“Frankly, we could not ask more to this team. We faced a very tough team from Nigeria, who did not let it go despite their World Cup qualification earned even before this match. We tried to develop our game despite the difficulties,” Madjer said after the game.
”That said, I think that what I saw tonight, the future of this selection looks bright. There are many positive things to remember, though, I repeat, not everything has been perfect.
”I think this draw is satisfying even if we could have won if we had converted the opportunities we got , especially in the second half.”
