Cape Town - Moroccan captain, Brahim El Bahri, has described
the Super Eagles team at the CHAN African Nations tournament as one of the
best teams he has had to face in his playing career. He also tipped the
Nigerian side for victory.
Nigeria bounced back from three goals down to beat Morocco 4-3 in
a quarterfinal game played on Saturday.
Bahri said the Nigerian team simply refused to give up even when Morocco thought they had won the match, and at the end of the day their
indomitable spirit won it for the Super Eagles.
Bahri said the team has learned quite a lot from their
performance in South Africa and will now go back to the drawing board to
prepare for the 2015 African Cup of Nations which Morocco will host.
“The lessons are great and we will see how far we can go to
win the confidence of the people and regain our selves for Afcon 2015, which we
will host in Morocco. We are sure we will go very far in the tournament”, he
Nigeria will take on Ghana in the semi-final on Wednesday.
