The elimination is not easy for us. It is hard for us and the country, who were expecting so much from us. I feel sorry for the players who wanted to write their own piece of history. It is a big disappointment for me and the entire team. I’m the first person to feel their pain. It is very hard for us in the dressing room, but we can raise our heads high.
The Cameroonian defence was compact from the start till the end. We created several opportunities but they resisted all our attacks. We were not collective upfront and missed a lot of chances. What we missed today was the fact that some players failed to realise that they cannot do it alone.
For 11 years, Senegal failed to reach this stage. We have worked for two years to reach here. However, there is still a lot of work to be done.
