Enyimba FC Head coach Usman Abdallah has hailed his players despite the team’s elimination from the Champions League following Sunday’s 1-0 aggregate defeat against Al Hilal.
Abd’Allah speaking in a chat with www.brila.net after the game said his side was unfortunate to have conceded a “stupid goal” despite putting up a spirited effort in the game.
He added that lessons have been learnt moving forward and that they will make good use of such lessons learnt in subsequent matches as Enyimba drop to the Confederation cup.
“I will commend the boys because they were very courageous at least we came out with our heads up,” the Coach said.
“We lost by a stupid mistake of a goal and I don’t want to talk about the officiating. That is football, I will take a lesson from that and I will learn a lot from the mistakes. I see a lot of things that we did right and things that we didn’t do right.”
