Benin Republic player, Steve Mounie has come out to say that he is disappointed with the loss vs Nigeria. He recently revealed that the defeat was really painful but focus has now shifted to the match vs Sierra Leone on Tuesday.
According to him, conceding right at the death was really frustrating because he and his fellow players fought very hard for a point.
He added that disappointments happen in football, so the country must now look forward to important games to come.
His words, “To concede right at the death it’s disappointing. We fought hard in the game and thought we did enough to get at least a draw,”
“Things like this happen in football and we have to put it behind us. The game against Sierra Leone is what we should be thinking about now. Hopefully, we can get a good result and get the qualification ticket.”
Rohr added, “It’s easier to play if you are already qualified so the players wanted to go ahead,”
“The challenge was to win here since 2013, Benin has not lost a match at home and the players absolutely wanted to do so and to be the first in eight years to beat them.”
“It hurts my heart to see an opponent lose at the last second but it’s true there is no place for emotions, really in football.”
