Black Satellites of Ghana coach, Malik Alhaji Jabir, paid tribute to Nigeria’s U-23 team after the 2-0 defeat of his team in their group match on Wednesday.
Jabir admitted that the Samson Siasia’s boys were far better than his team and that the result justified a true picture of the game.
“We lost to a better side, yes, I must admit that fact,” Jabir told completesportsnigeria.com.
“Nigeria were better, they were better prepared than us and that is the result you get when you refuse to prepare for a competition like this.
“Look at their fitness, you saw their transition, it shows they are organised, technically.
“It’s good luck to them and I feel the game went the way it should go.”
The Ghanaian gaffer said his boys played within the limit of their strength and blamed it on late preparation for the All Africa Games.
