Why we don’t deserve to play AFCON final – Moses

Why we don't deserve to play AFCON final - Moses

Super Eagles forward, Moses Simon, has said that Gernot Rohr‘s men don’t have the right to play in the current year’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, final in Egypt.

The Levante winger expressed this following his side’s 2-1 annihilation to Algeria at the AFCON semi-final game on Sunday.

Algeria led in the first half, thanks to a William Troost-Ekong own goal.

The Super Eagles levelled in the subsequent half, after a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) choice, with Odion Ighalo scoring the penalty.

With the match heading into additional time, Riyad Mahrez ventured up and punished a free-kick past Daniel Akpeyi, to send his side into the last.

Moses, be that as it may, noticed that the Super Eagles were baffled, including that Algeria chief, Riyad Mahrez was a brilliant and incredible player that chose and won for the North Africans.

Addressing correspondents after the match, Moses stated: ”We are disappointed because I think we don’t deserve it.“Mahrez is a smart player and a great player. He decided everything and they won.”

He added: ”We are professionals, we have to try to get rid of it and fight back”.

Nigeria will confront Tunisia on Wednesday in the third-place apparatus.
