Omeruo laments Eagles’ ouster

SuperEagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo, was one of the few Eagles who excelled in the World Cup as he played full time in the four matches the team played before crashing to France.

Many always point to him as the heart of the future Eagles but the youngster could not hold back his emotions after their misadventure in Brazil.

He spoke to Sports Vanguard; “We did almost everything possible but it was tough for us and I believe they were just the luckier side on the day. We had some good efforts saved and we recorded a good goal that was disallowed.eagles-traning

“There should have been a penalty in our favour and a red card for them for a bad tackle but all those never happened. Pogba himself was lucky to just be where the ball went after our keeper managed to parry it. So many things went on for France and these are part of the game.”

The Chelsea defender stressed that it was not the end of the world for the Eagles since there are many young players in the team.

“The big advantage of our current team is the youthfulness. Most of us are still very young and we are going to take all that happened here as learning process to get better. A better percentage will still be part of the team as we approach the next Nations Cup and also the next World Cup.

“We are taking positives from the competition to get better in future for our respective clubs and the national team,” Omeruo added.
