Under-23, Falcons Disappointed Us –NFF
The Nigeria Football Federation, General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, has expressed his unhappiness at the U-23 and Super Falcons failure to qualify for the final 11th African Games football event in Congo Brazzaville.
Both teams lost their semifinal matches on Tuesday. U-23 was lost 1-3 to Burkina Faso while Falcons was beaten 2-1 by Cameroon.
An unhappy Sanusi, who faulted the team’s failure to takes advantage of its chances, said that both teams’ performances were not good enough.
“I am not happy with the results of the teams,” Sanusi told a radio station in Lagos.
“We had a lot confidence in the teams that they were good enough because we gave them good preparations and they went there and they were playing well but it hasn’t turned out well.
“For the Falcons, they conceded very cheap goals during set pieces and allowed careless goals.
“They tried to come back but the goal refused to come,” Sanusi lamented.
The Dream Team will now play Congo in the losers’ final, while the Falcons play Cote d’Ivoire.
