Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro has reacted to the Flying Eagles defeat to South Korea at the FIFA U-20 World Cup on Sunday evening.

Seok-Hyun Choi scored the lone goal that saw the Taegeuk Warriors get the better of the Flying Eagles for the second time in their history.

A lot was expected from Nigeria’s U-20 team who had earlier knocked out Argentina in the last round but a slim loss to the Asians broke the hearts of the players.

Peseiro appreciated the effort of the boys and asked them to take the positive from the defeat

“Heads up, Flying Eagles!” Peserio wrote on Twitter. 

“What you have shown in this world cup makes Nigerian people proud . They fought and honored to the end and earned a place among the top 8 teams in the World”
