Former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Ike Shorunmu has lauded the performance of the Golden Eaglets at the 2023 U-17 Africa Cup of Nations.
Recall that Nigeria were eliminated from the tournament after losing 2-1 to Burkina Faso in the quarter finals on Thursday.
Reacting to the team’s performance, Shorunmu said that youngsters can learn from the defeat and build on for the future.
“The players gave all their best against Burkina Faso but its just unfortunate that their best was not enough.
“I can only encourage the players because missing the 2023 U-17 World Cup won’t be an easy thing to digest. But then it has happened and they must have to move on.”
