Speaking during the post match interview session, the American Soccer Tactician couldn’t hide his disappointment over the outcome of the match, admitting that they have to evaluate the team’s performance and look back at the games played so far.

“We are a bit satisfied that we qualified for the World Cup, even though we wanted more. When you don’t achieve the goals that you want, in major tournaments like this, then you need to access, find and improve on some areas you think you should have done differently.

“To just make an assumption that Nigeria will qualify for every World Cup is not a good assumption.”

“Especially considering the growth of Women’s Football in Africa, most teams are much better now, than they were ten years ago.” He Concluded.
