Madagascar Coach Dupuis Hails Players For Big Win Against Super Eagles

Madagascar coach Nicolas Dupuis has heaped plaudits on his players following Sunday’s shocking 2-0 win against the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Completesports.com reports.

Madagascar finished top of Group B with seven points with the win against one of the tournament favourites.

A goal in each half of the encounter from Lalaina Nomenjanahary and Carolus Andriamahitsinoro gave the Barea maximum points in the game played at the Alexandria Stadium.

Reacting after the final group match on Sunday against the three-time AFCON champions, the Barea head coach can’t hide his joy.

“I am so delighted because of how we played today,” Dupuis told the media after the game.

“I am very proud of my players and I would like to congratulate them for this result. It was a job well done and this is a big victory for us.

“I was happy when I learned about the groups because we were playing good teams and we had a chance to prove ourselves. I am happy that we did.”

Madagascar, as the winners of Group B, will take on the third-placed team in any of Group A, C or D in the Round of 16.

    Madagascar beat Nigeria and Rohr lost his credibility as a coach. Omo9ja and many other reasonable Nigerians have been saying that Rohr is not a coach but a fake one. Now, l can only agree with that gentleman. Nigeria, as a real team, have no business losing to a team like Madagascar if only Rohr is a good coach professionally.
    Next team Nigeria play will make sure they beat Nigeria again, having the knowledge that Nigeria coach is no good. In my humble opinion, and l know Omo9ja will agree with me here, Nigeria will surely loose the next game and return home.
    Omo9ja, l hope when l visit Nigeria, l shall be able to meet with you and drink beer together and share this experience of having a fake stupid coach that spoil our hopes in this fashion.
