Niger coach Francois Zahoui admitted that Nigeria were too good for his side after the Super Eagles claimed a 4-1 victory in the teams’ opening Group C match at the 2016 Africa Nations Championship on Monday.
Zahoui praised Nigeria for their powerful performance, but believes his side can bounce back in their remaining games.
“Nigeria is a very good side, you could all see how they came back in the second half strongly and with determination,” he told SuperSport.
“We kind of lost concentration immediately the second half began and that is what finished us.
“We are in a very tough group but what we can do is to generously accept the defeat and start work on our next game because we tried our best against Nigeria but they proved to be too good.
“We want to try and make amends in our next game but let’s remember Guinea are a very aggressive team, but we will learn from our mistakes against Nigeria and try to give our best performance as it is a tournament not a league.”
