Reacting to the team’s performance, the Atlanta Olympic gold medalist told Completesports.com that the players gave their host too much of room to operate.
“This is not the best of result I expected from the Super Eagles. They allowed Portugal to take total control of the game and were rightly punished.
“This sort of result doesn’t help the confidence of the team and I feel so disappointed that we lost 4-0 to Portugal.”
