Friendly Finidi Satisfied With Super Eagles Game Against Mali

The Super Eagles’ Interim manager, George Finidi, has provided an explanation for why they lost to the Mali Eagles.

In the second international friendly played on Tuesday in Marrakech, Morocco, the Nigerian squad was defeated 2-0 by their Mali counterparts.

Speaking on the match, Finidi commended the team’s overall performance but identified the absence of forwards as the primary cause for the loss.

“This is a team that keeps the ball very well but if we had our injured strikers available, we would have changed the one on the pitch immediately,” Finidi said in his post-match.

“Losing two strikers forced us to play wide and as an aggressive team, we did all we could. And you know football is all about victory.

“Lost one and won one and we are not outplayed in the two matches gives me joy as a coach of the Super Eagles.

I would have loved a different result in this game but that’s not the case if we look at the performance of the players, it’s commendable”, he added.
