Iheanacho whose mood was totally deflated after the game made his views known about his goal while reflecting on their loss.

“We really tried hard and unfortunately we lost the game, we will put it behind us and keep going” He said in his post match reaction.

“I thought the goal i scored would motivate my team to keep going and get another goal and win the game but unfortunately it didn’t and we lost”.
