Nigeria Sports Minister Solomon Dalung has praised the Super Eagles for their efforts at the just ended WAFU tournament despite the humiliation suffered in the hands of Ghana.
Dalung, who watched the final in Ghana is quoted to have told scorenigeri.com, said, “We cannot win the cup all the time and that’s why it’s called sports.
“Overall, the players did very well but unfortunately they came second. I am not disappointed but satisfied with their performance.”
Dalung urged the Nigeria Football Federation technical department to work with the team’s coaching staff to make the side stronger.
“They did very well but of course the coaching staff will go back to review the match and amend certain strategic shortfalls in terms of coordination in our play, but overall, we must sincerely admit that they did well,” he added.
