Speaking after the match, the former World Cup winner with Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets said, “Everything worked absolutely well. We controlled the game but tactically Morocco controlled the outcome. We had a few mistakes as well but we created so many chances, and the only problem is that we couldn’t score.

He added; “it does happen in football. It is not a strange thing, but it is important to correct and ensure we are more efficient in front of goal.”
