Ighalo said it was not enough for the team to lose in the semifinals of the AFCON with Algeria, but assured that the Super Eagles team would defeat Tunisia in the third place.

“Nigerians we are sorry. It was a difficult game and we were unlucky at the last minute. The second half, we really played well and we deserve more than what we got. We have to learn from our mistakes and we look forward to the third place game.”

The Super Eagles on Sunday night lost a massive opportunity to win a fourth AFCON title in a 2-1 semi-final defeat to Desert Warriors of Algeria after a last minute free kick goal by Riyad Mahrez.
