“WE LOST THE GAME, AT LEAST WE TRIED OUR BEST” – Samson Tijani

The Captain of the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria spoke to the press following their disappointing Round of 16 exit from the 2019 FIFA U17 World Cup, at the hands of a Netherlands’ side that finished third in their group, losing their opening two fixtures.

He offered his apologies to Nigerians and Nigerian fans, stating that although they admot that the result is a disappointing one for the squad, they are positive, as they were knocked out by a good opponent and that they had “tried their best”.

Tijani said:

“On behalf of the team, I will just say we are sorry. For today’s game we got hard luck but we really thank God for everything, injury-free and our opponents are a very good side.

We played till the end but we lost the game, at least we tried our best.”
