Former Nigerian midfielder, Austine Okocha believes the Super Eagles did not do enough in their Afcon round of 16 tie against Tunisia on Sunday.
The former Nigerian captain was disappointed with the performance of the squad, after losing 1-0 to the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia at the Omnisports Roumde Adjia Stadium in Garoua.
“It’s disappointing, but we have to say congratulations to Tunisia. Well deserved victory. I think they outsmarted us tactically.
“They came with a good game plan and they executed it. And you know, it’s a lesson to every football lover. Football is always the winner, a game has to be played first.
“We didn’t do enough to win this match and we were taught a life lesson today. So, we just have to pick ourselves up, find positives and build from there.” He said after the game.”
The defeat put an end to Nigeria’s dream of winning the tournament for the fourth time in her history.
The three-time African champion will now turn their attention to the FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Ghana in May.
