Why We Struggled To Beat Algeria - Etebo



Dream Team VI hero, Oghenekaro Etebo, has denied that the settlement of their outstanding allowances served as the impetus for them to win the u-23 African Nations Cup.
Etebo, whose brace helped Nigeria beat Algeria in the final explained that he and his colleagues were passionate to lift the trophy.
“I won’t say we left our best for the final because we were paid. We were motivated because everybody wanted to win the trophy despite the fact  we had already qualified for the Olympics. To make it sweeter, we wanted to go for Gold,” Etebo told allnigeriasoccer.com.
“We made mistakes that cost us in the earlier games but we fixed them because we lost concentration in the first two games in the second half and we promised ourselves to fix it right which we did.”
Etebo who emerged the tournament’s top goal scorer having netted five times at the competition in Senegal is now being chased by European clubs.
He said: “Well, hopefully I think I am off to Europe which has always been my prayer and I believe it has come to pass. Clubs are already talking with me.”
