Nigeria Head Coach Gernot Rohr says his team was drained after the semi-final defeat to Algeria, but insists they deserved victory in the play-off match against Tunisia.
Gernot said the players can now hold on some thing motivating and to show to their families.
“We deserve this bronze medal, we would have preferred to bring back the gold medal but we ran out of luck in the game against the Algerians.
“But, I tell you the players will be motivated because it’s better they come back with something than to be empty handed.
“We have the motivation to win it today its not easy, for the players to be committed after the semi-finals is not easy but at least bringing something back to show to their families,” Rohr offered in conclusion.
