Zambia coach, Wesson Nyerinda after last night’s game gave the Super Eagles a pat on the back declaring that Nigeria deserves her World Cup ticket.
Nyerinda who spoke moments after the game noted that the Chipolopolo came to Uyo determined to get result and throw the group wide open ahead of the last round of matches.
“We came to Nigeria with nothing but victory in mind. Iwobi’s goal demoralized us. We put up a good fight, but I think Nigeria deserves to pick the group’s only ticket.”
Nyerinda said yesterday’s game was a difficult one insisting that his players equally deserve commendation for putting up a good fight.
“We remained in contention until Iwobi’s strike that did the magic for Nigeria. On the whole, we did well because right from day one when the draw was made bookmakers tipped Nigeria and Cameroon as favourites. Nobody gave us a chance,” Nyerinda said.
