Lesotho head coach, Leslie Notsi has boasted that his team combined bravery and brawn to stop the Super Eagles of Nigeria from flying high.
Notsi, who spoke at the post-match chat with newsmen commended the impressive performance of his boys, though the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
Lesotho was expected to lose by a wide margin in the game but they stood their ground against the Super Eagles, who are three-time African champions.
Lesotho coach said that his players desire to get a favourable paid off in the contest.
“We did not give them (Super Eagles) respect. We said no ‘they are the same human beings like us, let’s go there for enjoyment.
“But the enjoyment we are talking about is not to just go and waste time. But the self-belief should be there, and they should express themselves in the areas that they are good at.
“We followed the team, we saw the video clips, and we saw areas that we could capitalize on.”
Lesotho is expected to face the Squirrels of Benin Republic in their game at the Moses Mahbida Stadium next week Tuesday.
