2022 WCQ: Defeat To Super Eagles Discouraging – Liberia Captain, Macauley

Captain of the Lone Stars of Liberia, Marcus Macauley, says their defeat to the Super Eagles of Nigeria is discouraging but that he is pleased with the rebuilding process his team is undergoing.

Victor Osimhen and Ahmed Musa scored from the spot to help the Eagles beat Liberia 2-0 in Tangier, Morocco on Saturday and maintain their leadership in Group C as they are now on 12 points.

On their part Liberia are out of the race as they remain bottom on three points.

“First of all, I want to say congratulations to the Super Eagles of Nigeria for the victory they achieved against Liberia. I must admit that they have got fantastic and wonderful players in their team,” Macauley said during the post-match press conference.

“They have a really solid squad. The defeat is, however, somehow discouraging. We came in to the game to give our best for our country but unfortunately, we lost to the Nigerian national team, a good side.

“We are still in a learning and rebuilding process just like our coach said earlier on. We are improving, though as I can say that so many positive things are happening to our team which we need to sustain.

“And as the coach said, we are doing really good but unfortunately, we lost to Nigeria, so it is what it is. Despite the loss, I can say that I am very proud of all my team-mates and their effort against Nigeria.”

    Good luck Lone Star, it is clear you found SE presence intimidating and couldn’t do much.

  • Any discipline team with good attackers will punish eagles.

      Y don’t u go and form d discipline team and come, y do u hate ur own like this, y. Will u stop training ur child because he/she is a failure? Why are will like this. We have played Cameroon, Algeria, Tunisia, south Africa, and other stubborn Africa teams with same square without issues. If u have low self-esteem, low self-efficacy and u lack self trust on ur self, pls don’t attribute it to others.

        @Douglas: Those are not Nigerians. They appears in the forum camouflage with Nigerian names. With their comments you can pick the hypocrites apart. Don’t lose sleep with those jealous loosers. We are Super Eagles and everyone knows what we represent.
