Nigeria’s head coach Stephen Keshi was full of praises for his team in spite of their 1-2 loss to hard-fighting Uruguay on Thursday.
The match was their second group B match in Salvador, Brazil, at the ongoing 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup.
Although he lamented the missed scoring chances, he said the Super Eagles were beaten, not disgraced.
“We gave the game our all but you know Uruguay has been together for six years and we are just rebuilding.
“Sooner than later, we will catch up with the rest of the best teams in the world,’’ Keshi vowed.
