“We knew we needed that last game to seal it up, the support we got after winning the second game was amazing.
“We really wanted to do it especially for our families and for Nigerians but we were unlucky.”
The central defender added,
“They were attacking a lot, they blocked our wing, they knew we were better from the Victor Moses wing because he is one of our best players, they knew this.
“They pressed on us, we defended well until the last four minutes.”
