Super Eagles return home after CHAN loss

The home based Super Eagles of Nigeria has arrived the country after crashing out of the African Nations Championship in Rwanda.

The Sunday Oliseh led team lost 1-0 to Guinea in the final group game on Tuesday, no thanks to Ibrahima Sankhon’s goal at the stroke of half time, and as a result, Nigeria finished third in the group with four points.

Oliseh, who was on the sideline dishing out instructions during the encounter, said though he is proud of his players, but they crashed out of the tournament due to some moral difficulties.

“What did not go right is the fact that I think today somewhere inside it was difficult for the players to overcome some moral difficulties they have come across. This is an adult tournament and there are certain things which must be present if you want to go far and win the tournament, and that is what my players see is existing in other teams that we don’t have in our team.”

The Nigeria Football Federation has however apologized to the Federal Government and the people of Nigeria over the team’s ouster.
