Pillar ofÂ Sports, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, Tuesday, bewailed Nigeria’s inability to lift the Nations Cup, blaming it on Eagles shy tactics. Kalu who spoke in Onitsha Anambra State said the team had everything going for them especially in the first game against Egypt.
“They came out smoking against Egypt and scored a great goal. That was the only goal the eventual champions conceded if you remove the own goal against Cameroun. TheÂ Pharaohs were not so confident in that game until they noticed their foes did not go for the killâ€™, Kalu said.
The ex- governor said the Eagles also failed history.â€œIt was first time Ghana would score before Nigeria in the Natons Cup and first time Nigeria would lose to the defending Nations Cup champions.
