Sudan Coach Tia: Super Eagles Were Far Too Good For Us

Sudan head coach Burhan Tia admitted the Super Eagles were too good for his side following their 3-1 defeat to the three-time champions in a Group D encounter at the Roumde Adija Stadium, Garoua on Saturday, reports Completesports.com.

The Falcons of Jediane went behind as early as the third minute and even though they put up a spirited fight in the game, they were certainly no match for the Super Eagles.


Tia stated that there was no shame in losing to the Super Eagles , who according to him are one of the best teams on the continent.

“We gave our best against one the best teams on the continent, but obviously it wasn’t enough to guarantee us a win,” Tia said during his interaction with the media after the game.

“They have a lot of quality players and it showed in their performance. They were too good for us. We take a lot of lessons from this defeat.

“We have one game left in the group and we will do our best to qualify even though it is not going to be easy.”

Sudan will take on Egypt in their final group game on Wednesday.

    Was it not this man who said Eypgt will beat Nigeria and that his team will qualify alone side with
    Egypt.That Nigeria don’t have quality players. Well I thank God for the appointment of Egudiola.lots of teams in Africa and beyond lost respect for SE due to Rohr’s lethargy and insipid style of play but with the Ruthlessness with which Egudiola team now play the respect is returning. All glory to God.

      The moment when reality sets in. A paint brush in the hand of farmer is useless but in the hands of an artist, it is a masterpiece.

      Rohr should be arrested for impersonating a coach!

      Well done to the team.

    Na ref Gomez save dem today. Ref Gomez and the many chances we missed is the reason they survived with just a 3-1 spanking.
    The game should have ended 4 nil, at least.
    The ref disallowed Iwobi’s goal. And then to add salt to injury, awarded a disgrace of a penalty to Sudan. A penalty you will not see even in Women’s football.
    The only penalty I’ve seen that is worse than this one, is the penalty awarded to Argentina in Lagos, when we smacked them 4-1.
    I’ve been watching Iheanacho for a while now. That guy is a honest player. He doesn’t dive or cheat. If he fouls, he doesn’t deny it. Look at the way he protested the ref’s decision, so vehemently. That tells you that something is not right. That ref goofed big time.
    If we were more productive in front of goal, we might have run up the score to maybe 8 goals. We missed so many chances.

    • The ref was right it was a clear penalty in fact aina was holding the guy jersey while he stepped on him . Even hid reaction after the yellow card said it all that he did intentionally

  • So this loud mouth can be this humble. SE have rammed humble pie down his throat.Lol.

    Was he not the same person berating the SE some days back? Now his mouth has been firmly shut.

    That aside.That Ola Aina’s stump leading to the penalty was totally needless.It was a moment of madness.The Sudanese player wasn’t posing a goal threat,therefore I see no reason Ola had to do that.

    It needs to be reiterated soundly to our players that this is the era of VAR and every infringement is potentially subject to VAR review. So they should be careful especially in our box.Harebrained actions need to be avoided.

    Aina did not intentionally stump the player.
    The highlights show that Aina and the player both had their hands on each other as they jostled for position in the box. Aina was not even looking at the player. His eyes were directed at the ball. It seems the Sudan player placed his foot under Aina’s foot, also involuntarily. It was a very minimal contact, not enough to hurt the Sudan player. But you know in football, if you blow breeze on some players, they will fall to the ground as if they had been shot. The South Americans do this a lot.
    I agree that our players should be more vigilant next time, so they don’t fall victim to dishonest players and clueless refs. But the fact is Aina did not do anything that is out of the ordinary as a defender.

      You are definitely wrong . Aina did it intentionally otherwise he won’t be pulling the guys jersey, every of his action was pure foul and a penalty , we were lucky he wasn’t shown a red card !!

      • pompei 4 months ago

        We were lucky he wasn’t shown a red card? Lol, I rest my case.
        Red card ko, purple card ni. No need continuing a discussion with a confused person.

    • EZOMO 4 months ago

      Very wrong the ref got It right gv back and watch It again he did it intentionally, in fact he was even holding the guy jersey , he marched the Sudanese guy seriously, u are just accusing the ref wrongly

      • pompei 4 months ago

        No be only march he march the guy. He also used a hammer that he kept in his pocket to smash the guy’s head.
        Chai, Aina is so wicked! Very bad of him!

  • Super Eagle has taught Sudan and their coach a lesson for they talk too much. Thank God Tia has swallowed is pride. Austin give the fringe players a chance in the next match. We want to see Ejuke, Collins, ebuehi, onyekuru, iwobi, olayinka, onyeka, musa and the rest how they will add value to thevmain team in the knock out stages
