Super Eagles Team B captain and first choice goalkeeper, Chigozie Agbim has said that he is happy winning the bronze medal of the African Nations Championship.

Speaking after the 1-0 win over Zimbabwe, Agbim said, ‘’football does not always come the way you planned it. We came to win the tournament but failed. However, we thank God we are not going empty handed. I congratulate my team mates for putting up an excellent fighting spirit.’’

Zimbabwe coach, Ian Gorrows has expressed satisfaction with the fourth placemen his team team achieved in the African Nations Championship.

In a post match briefing after his brave wards fell 1-0 to the Super Eagles, Gorrows said, ‘’As a nation it is a great achievement to be in the final of CHAN. We believe we can now be counted among the top four in Africa. In the semi final we lost on penalties. As a nation which has been starved of success for long, we are proud of our achievement here.
