Eagles boss, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi has heaped praises on his players following their gallant display against the Pharaohs of Egypt that ended 2-3 against Nigeria in Dubai, UAE, Thursday night.
Addressing the players after the match Big Boss Keshi said despite the frustrating display by the referee, the team showed character, grit and concentration till the last whistle.
“The referee if he has a conscience, should know that he robbed us, because we had a penalty that was not given and the last goal looked questionable but like I told you I expected this type of officiating.
Pick yourself up and lets get set for the next round of game”, he told the players.
All technical crew members felt the same and gave kudos to the players, urging them not to be downcast over the last minute extra time goal.
Nigeria next faces Gabon in another international friendly in Libreville, next month.
