Quotes from the 2013 Afcon
“We have to work harder as a team, nothing can bring us down after this result. Victor Moses was not physically fit for this game but he will play the next one if he gets better”.
Stephen Keshi- Super Eagles Coach
“As far as the result is concerned, it wasn’t the best start for us. We were supposed to win this game, it is like a lost game to me. Of course we played a good game and we controlled it but that is football for you. The match against Zambia is going to be like a Cup final because we want to qualify for the next stage”.
Joseph Yobo- Super Eagles Captain
“We played a good game and I am proud of my players. The opportunity for us to qualify to the next round is still open”.
Paul Put- Burkina Faso Coach
“It was a hard game against Nigeria as we expected but the draw is good for us and we are going to work harder”.
Dagano Moumouni – Burkina Faso Captain
“We caused ourselves this loss, we were attacking without cover. We were supposed to put one player in front but we did not and this cost us our victory”.
Sunday Oliseh – Former Nigerian International International
“Just like I’ve been saying for weeks now, Nigerians should not hope on this tournament because our players are not fit to carry the cup. Nigeria cannot win this cup but Keshi should use this match in planning for the future”.
Taribo West –Former Nigerian Super Eagles Defender
