Head Coach of Golden Eaglets Nduka Ugbade says he’s satisfied with the performance of his players, despite crashing out of African Cup of Nations to lowly rated Burkina Faso.
The Golden Eaglets were shown the exit door by the Junior Stallions who were 2-1 winners during their quarter final tie on Thursday.
Aboubacar Camara scored a brace for the Junior Stallions to earn them victory in the tightly contested duel.
“I am happy with the performance of our players and in such competitions, even if you lose, you gain something by developing the players for the future.”
The Stallions made the most of their chances, while Nigeria will be left ruing their missed opportunities especially in the opening half where they hit the woodwork twice.
Looking back at the defeat, Ugbade says they would have progressed, if they had converted their chances.
“Everything worked as we had planned, but we could not score with the chances we had. We paid dearly for that. We learn the lessons and move on,” he said.
The tactician also backed the team to bounce back in future.
