In her post match press conference, after her side 1-1 tie with the Black Queens of Ghana, Florence Omagbemi,Head Coach of Nigeria, was satisfied with the performance from her side and her opponents.
“The game was great and both teams played well. Ghana gave us a good match and it was an impressive game,” Omagbemi told reporters.
She however, lamented the fact that they were rubbed of a penalty by the referee which could have changed the game.
“The foul on Asisat Oshoala was a clear penalty in my own assessment. I was disappointed in the referee not making the call.” She laments.
Omagbemi praises her players for the fighting spirit and hopes to get a good result when they face Kenya next.
“We were not over confident after the 6-0 victory over Mali. Today, we played against a good team and it was a good match by both teams. A draw (1-1) is not a bad result.
We played well and were not expecting to draw. I’m looking forward to the game with Kenya and get a good result. We just want to play convincingly against Kenya and hopefully top the group.” She said hopefully.
