AFCON 2021: Our performance wasn’t good enough – Ahmed Musa speaks on Nigeria’s elimination

Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has admitted that the Super Eagles performance was not good enough during their round of 16 battle against Tunisia on Sunday.

The Carthage Eagles defeated Nigeria 1-0 to book their place in the last eight of the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Most of the Nigerian players are already at their various club sides after the painful loss and Musa, who was a late substitute during the game, said the team gave their 100 percent but it was not enough for the day.

“In life, things wouldn’t always go the way we want them to and that’s something we have to accept however hard it is,” Musa tweeted on Tuesday afternoon.

“We gave our 100% and unfortunately that wasn’t good enough to take us through.

“We won’t give up, we will do better next time. Thanks for all your support and prayers.”
