Flying Eagles head coach, Ladan Bosso has kind words for his players despite the team’s disappointing elimination from the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina.
The Nigerian boys lost 1-0 to the Taeguk Warriors of South Korea in their quarter-final clash on Sunday night.
Choi Seokhyun scored the winning goal for the Asians in extra time.
South Korea will now face Italy in the quarter-finals on Thursday.
Bosso eulogized his players for their performance in the game but hinted they were let down by their poor finishing.
“We tried our best but it wasn’t good enough. Our finishing wasn’t good. But you can see we’ve left a group of players for the federation to build on,” he said.
