12th AAG: Flying Eagles Lose To Burkina Faso, Settle For Silver Medal

Nigeria’s Flying Eagles settled for Silver medal after they fell to a 2-0 defeat to Burkina Faso in the final of the men’s football event at the 12th All Africa Games in Rabat, Morocco, reports Completesports.com.

The Paul Aigbogun’s charges conceded twice in the first half of the encounter played at the Stade Moulay Hassan.

Despite spirited efforts to find their way back into the game, the Flying Eagles were unable to breach the Burkina Faso defence in the second half.

Both teams battled to a 1-1 draw in the group stage, but Burkina Faso proved their superiority over the Flying Eagles this time around.

Nigeria last won an All Africa Gold medal in the 1973 edition.

    …Paul Aigbogun, very weak and clueless coach. The team only got to the final based on luck…

    This team is useless.

      Point of correction Coach not team. Naija is blessed with talents but bad coach will give zero results.

    What baffles me is why the Nff board led by Amaju pinick has not fired this coach. Is it that they are now
    Embracing failure

    This is what you get Nigerians as long as Amaju stays in the office. The system is zero. Only God can help Nigeria. I’m not surprised about the result. Keep hailing Mr. Amaju and this is what you get. Shine your eyes ooo. God bless Nigeria!!!

     
  • That is Aigbogun for You! I clearly stated here before this competition started that he is only good at scouting and not as a coach. This coach depends solely on LUCK. And he has been riding on the back LUCK throughout the competition. Unfortunately when the time came where luck has no power to decide the game and where the battle line is drawn between a COACH and a SCOUT, Paul Aigbogun was put in the place where he belongs. I believe the backer of this coach in rhe football administration would by now be convinced that the time has come to for them ro do rhe right for the interest of the nation and the progress of our football.

      Very well put bro. I think it’s high time the NFF opens dia eyes, ugbade has been with the u17 for some time now, so he must have gained valuable experience being an assistant coach now for awhile. NFF should put Manu as our u20 coach for some time while if possible allow amuneke time with our u23 (maybe not now but after hopefully amakabio (wrong spelling) qualifies 9ja for d olympics). Blif me d amount of talent 9ja will produce if given these coaches the conducive environment and time to succeed, no country will be able to compete. Pay them well and on time, I think a major problem with our football is d lack of interaction with d coaches. it’s only in soccer tournaments that I hear rhor talking about 9ja teams, no fault of his if there is no clause in his contract to do so. But I think all levels of our team should talk more and help each person succeed. Talk tactics, techniques, maybe even develop our own unique philosophy that teams would want to adopt, who says it’s not possible lol. My humble opinion

    The coach is clueless. He plays aimless football and depends always on luck.His incompetence is clearly noticed by everybody. It’s time for his replacement.

  • Pls guys let’s forget about nff and ministry of sports in this issue,mr Aigbogun has never won a game except when Rorh borrowed him players from super eagles.i think he have to go now before it’s too late,and for some of us that is calling for Naija coaches just take note,
