After falling to a defeat at the hands of the Pharaohs of Egypt, the interim coach of the super eagles of Nigeria said his team were unlucky. The described the super eagles team he inherited as ‘broken’.
He said, “We are very disappointed. We couldn’t do it,” said a very sober Siasia on arrival in Abuja from Alexandria Wednesday morning.
“We inherited a broken team, but we worked so hard, but it was not to be. I’m proud of the boys. We were not lucky right from the first game in Kaduna. And God knows why. We thank Nigerians for their support.”
The tactician was of the opinion that his team deserved more from the game than a loss. He had earlier expressed optimism about the chances of the Super Eagles in qualifying for the AFCON in 2017 and would only be disappointed with the loss.
