By Augustine Akhilomen

Super Eagles Chief coach, Salisu Yusuf says the team defeat to the Black Stars of Ghana will serve as a lesson to them ahead of the CHAN tournament next year.

Nigeria were beaten 4-1 in the final of the WAFU Cup on Sunday to claim their first trophy at the Regional tournament.

However, Salisu reiterated during the post match that the team lost to a better side and should start thinking ahead.

“We lost to a good team, which is a good lesson for us. The tournament was good," Nigeria coach Yusuf said after the match.

"The boys did well throughout the tournament but its sad that they lost at the end but that is the way the game is.”
