Aigbogun speaking in a chat with www.brila.neton the Flying Eagles outing at the tournament lamented the circumstances of been knocked out of the running for the title initially having been beaten on penalties by Mali before another shootout session in the Third place game against South Africa meant the Amajitas finished above Nigeria.
