Why We lost to Switzerland – Sand Eagles Skipper

Isiaka Olawale, the Captain of Sand Super Eagles on Monday said that his side lost to Switzerland at the COPA Lagos Beach Soccer Tournament due to fatigue.

The Sand Eagles lost 3-8 to Switzerland at the Eko Atlantic, Victoria Island, Lagos on Sunday in their opening game of the tournament.

 

“We left our Badagry camp hotel for Eko Hotel about four hours to the match after our training.

“We were tired, we ought to have left the Badagry camp on Friday but we were unable to leave until Sunday, the day of the match.

“’This is not a confirmation that we are not ready for the CAF Beach Soccer tournament.

“For us, that is the main competition, we will focus on that now,’’ the captain said.

Olawale also told NAN that his teammates were in top form.
