Exclusive: 2023 AFCONQ: Eagles Played Well But Unlucky Against Guinea-Bissau –Babangida

Former Nigerian winger, Tijani Babangida has revealed that the Super Eagles were unlucky against Guinea-Bissau despite playing good football in today’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Recall that Nigeria suffered their first defeat of the AFCON 2023 qualifying campaign after Guinea-Bissau picked up a stunning 1-0 win at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

A lone goal by Mama Samba Balde in the first half proved to be the decisive moment of the game despite Nigeria’s best efforts to salvage at least a point.

With the reverse fixture set for next week Monday, the Atlanta Olympic gold medalist told Completesports.com that the team played quality football but were unlucky to score against Guinea-Bissau.

“Yes I was not happy that the Super Eagles lost 1-0 to Guinea-Bissau despite the team playing good football.

“I am really impressed with the performance of the players and I hope they will get the job done in the reverse fixture in order to remain atop of the group.”

  • They need to get the job done.

    God bless Nigeria

    Good luck guys

    • In addition, match of this magnitude should have been played in Uyo or Benni City.

      We don’t need any prophet to tell us that Abuja Stadium is not a good ground for our players.

  • The Super Eagles were thrown off balance by a weaker team’s counter attack.From then on it was mistake after mistske, and the poor pitch conditions did not help matters.
