Said Keshi ‘’it was our first game and we were four goals down and we came back in the second half and drew level 4-4 within 12 minutes. But this one, is something unique. ‘I salute the fighting spirit of my boys and their courage. It is a special game and a special result.’’

The gaffer who was all smiles after the match said at half time he told the players that they were giving the Moroccans too much respect . ‘’I told them to play their game and take the game to the Moroccans. And that they did in the second half as they took the game to their opponents who were also very good.’’
