Super Eagles interim technical adviser Augustine Eguavoen on Sunday said his team didn’t have the right to lose against Tunisia in their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations round of 16 game.
Nigeria crashed out of the AFCON on Sunday in Garoua, Cameroon after a 0-1 misfortune to Tunisia.
The North Africans currently advance to the opposition’s quarter-finals where they will assume the Stallions of Burkina Faso on a similar Stade Roumde Adjia contribute Garoua.
Eguavoen, while talking at the post-match public interview, faulted awful directing for his group’s ouster from the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon.
He added that his players battled a decent battle.
“We attempted to return after the Tunisia objective, and we pursued the game. However at that point we got a red card.
“Obviously the directing was ridiculous,” the mentor said.
He anyway unveiled that he had advised the players to immediately put the misfortune behind them and face the current task in March.
“I have advised the players to get and guarantee they qualify Nigeria for the World Cup,” Eguavoen said.
He anyway brought up that it was in every case extremely challenging when you play against a strategic side like Tunisia, particularly when the administering was a little absurd.
“I will not reprimand the official since they are experts of the game, yet Alex Iwobi’s red card was just a little absurd. The foul was certifiably not a deliberate one,” the mentor added.
The Super Eagles will presently anticipate the 2022 FIFA World Cup African Zone end of the season games in March against Ghana.
