Interim coach of the Super Eagles, Samson Siasia, has expressed his disappointment, after their 1-0 defeat to Egypt on Tuesday, which ensures they will not qualify for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

It will be the second consecutive edition that Nigeria will be absent, after they failed to reach the 2015 tournament in Equatorial Guinea.

“We are very disappointed. We couldn’t do it,” Siasia said on arrival in Abuja from Alexandria Wednesday morning.

“We inherited a broken team, but we worked so hard, but it was not to be.

“I’m proud of the boys. We were not lucky right from the first game in Kaduna. And God knows why.

“We thank Nigerians for their support”, he said.

Siasia took over the team a month ago, after Sunday Oliseh’s shocking resignation.
