“It’s over now, we have to face the truth, no one cares about excuses,”

“We were fighting similar battles during our playing days, and we were fighting to play for the national team because it is an honor.

“Everyone has the same goal, whether it is the football federation, the fans, or the players.”

The Super Eagles will face the Pharaohs of Egypt in their opening game of the 2021 AFCON finals at the Stade Roumde Adjia, Garoua on Tuesday (today).
