MVP Moses Osas Happy To Shine In Eagles Draw

Man of the match in the Tunisia versus Nigeria match Moses Osas has expressed delight at achieving the feat.

He, however, said the credit goes not only to him but to the entire team.

Osas who was effective in the middle was also able to provide the needed assist for Chisom Chikatara to grab Eagles’ goal in the 52nd minute of the game.

An excited Nigerian community and technical crew here had thought they had the game in control but Tunisia’s danger man Ahmed Akaichi equalised in the 70th minute and all effort by the Nigerian side to go tops again in the match faiiled.

“I am happy to have won man of the match but it is not only my doing, we worked together to achieve this,” said Osas.

He revealed that the team had hoped and prayed eanerstly to beat Tunisia by at least a lone goal but regretted that it did not happen.

He however remained optimistic that Eagles will forge ahead despite the draw.
