Super Eagles coach, Austin Eguavoen says he is disappointed at Super Eagles 1-0 loss to Guinea over the weekend.
Eguavoen said a lot of things went wrong but on the pitch it was unfortunate his side lost the game.
“It’s a sad loss. A poor performance so to say but we didn’t start the game too well even though we picked up but did not do enough to win or at least get a draw,” Eguavoen said.
“We tried to hold them for at least half an hour and that was why we started with a 4-4-2 and then we changed to a 4-3-3 later in the game. We were then able to pick up but at the end of the day it didn’t work for us.”
He admitted that they missed some key players that could have turned the game around for Nigeria.
“I wouldn’t want to discredit those that played but truth be told if we had Osaze, Mikel and Etuhu, it could have been better though the team I had did very well on the day,” Eguavoen said.
The loss leaves Nigeria in 2nd position on 3 points, same as Ethiopia, but better on goal difference while Guinea are runaway leaders having won both games they played in the group.
