Despite losing 0-4 to hosts-Morocco in the final of the 2018 edition of the African Nations Championship played on Sunday, the Minister of Youth and Sport Development, Solomon Dalung said, the Super Eagles had recorded another ‘first’ in football history. He urged Nigerians to take the positives away from the CHAN Super Eagles’ second best performance in Casablanca Morocco.  

Dalung who was in Morocco to lend his support to the team and cheer them to victory said, the team recorded its best ever outing at the competition with their silver medal winning feat. 

“Coming for this tournament, many Nigerians never gave the team a chance because of the way they prepared and their pessimism about the players in the Nigerian Professional Football League. But, getting to the finals against all odds, the players proved many critics wrong about the standard of the NPFL which can only get better.” 

He however enjoined Nigerians to see the team as a work in progress if the vision driving the current League Management Company running the Nigerian league can be sustained while adding the role of better preparation for a tournament cannot be over emphasized.
