By Sampson Adedeji

After suffering a defeat against Enyimba international in the final group game, head coach of Orlando Pirates of South Africa, Josef Zinnabauer, has congratulated the Nigeria side, reports.

Cyril Olisema solitary strike late in the game ensured the People’s Elephants secured a 1-0 win and also topped the group.

Zinnbauer said they planned to secure at least a draw adding that the defeat was a good experience for the youngsters in the team.

“We had a lot of young boys on the field today, especially as substitutes. Monyane and Sesane came in the second half – these players who are 17, 18, 19 years old.

“So, it’s a good experience for these players. We need these players and they can give us options when we have injury worries.

“I am not happy with the result, but the performance was good. A draw was the target, but we lost the game at the last minute.

“It was a fair game, we lost it and that can be.

Congratulations to Enyimba, congratulations to us for qualifying but it was a tough game for us,” he stated.
