By Adeboye Amosu: Home-based Super Eagles midfielder Dayo Ojo feels the team gave their all in the final of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) against Morocco and were disappointed to end the competition on a sour note, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The Super Eagles went down to a 4-0 defeat against the Atlas Lions in final on Sunday in Casablanca.
It was Nigeria’s best placing in the history of the competition after coming third at the 2014 edition in South Africa.
But despite the team surpassing pre-tournament expectations by going as far as the final, Ojo insisted that they were disappointed they didn’t come back home with the trophy.
“I must confess we did our best in Morocco especially in the final but things didn’t work out according to plan,” he told CSN.
“We were desperate to win the title for the first time and gave our best all through.
“The red card also made things difficult for us in the final as well as the weather.
“But we can be proud of our achievement in the competition as nobody gave us a chance to make it to the final.”
