Amodu: “We were unlucky”

The Super Eagles exhibited what Amodu termed their best performance at the Orange Africa Cup of Nations, but failed to break through the iron-clad defence of the Black Stars, who cruised into their first final since 1992.

 “We didn’t lose to a better side, but to a youthful and enterprising team. We were better and we paid for not making the most of our chances.”

 Amodu was yet to come to terms with the ‘missing link’ behind their inability to brush past the Ghanaians, whose strength he believes comes no where near some of their opponents en route to this stage.

 “We have scaled over much tougher opponents to reach this far. In football, goal is power. When you play well and you don’t score, you are bound to lose.”

 The Black Stars like in their last three matches shot into the lead in the first half through striker Asamoah Gyan, and the 51-year old trainer said the opener marked the beginning of their woes.

 “The goal changed the chemistry of our game. My players recovered but the equalizer never came.”
