AFCON 2023: Collective Success More Important Than MOTM — Simon

Moses Simon says collective success of the team is more important to him than individual accolade, reports Complete sports.com.

The Nantes winger was named Man of the Match following Nigeria’s 1-0 victory against the Palancas Negras of Negras on Friday night.

Simon produced a sublime assist to set up Ademola Lookman for the winning goal four minutes the break.

The former KAA Gent star said the success of the team was the priority.

“I’m very happy but the most important thing is that we won,” Simon told reporters after the game.

“You can be man of the match and your team loses the game.”

The Super Eagles will take on the winner of the game between Cape Verde and South Africa in the semi-final in Bouake next Wednesday.
