“I am excited at the positives we have taken away from this tour. Yes, we lost one game and drew the other, but the important thing is the spirit of the players and the way they approached the entire tour," said Akinwunmi.

“The NFF has taken a lot of positives from this trip. As for the players, the exposure was huge for them and they will surely be better players going forward."
