Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets lost 1-0 to Morroco in their second group game of the ongoing U-17 African Cup of Nations in the match played on Wednesday.

Speaking after the game, Coach Nduka Ugbade of Eaglets admitted Morroco’s superior tactics even though he noted his boys put in their best.

“Everything worked well. We controlled the game but tactically Morocco controlled the outcome.

“We had a few mistakes as well but we created so many chances, and the only problem is that we couldn’t score.

“It does happen in football. It is not a strange thing, but it is important to correct and ensure we are more efficient in front of the goal.

“We must be more efficient with the chances we have. We will try to look for some different ways tactically to impact the outcome of the game. We have a chance, but also, that chance can fade away. We have to work hard,” he concluded.

Nigeria will face South Africa in their last group game as they hope to reach the semi-final of the tournament- a feat that will guarantee them one of the available tickets to the world cup from Africa
