Friendly: Super Eagles Performance Against Mali Commendable –Finidi

Finidi George has described the Super Eagles' performance as commendable despite losing to Mali in Tuesday's friendly game in Marrakech, Morocco.

Goals from El Bilal Toure and Kamory Doumbia secured a 2-0 win for Mali.

It was a first win for the Malians against the Eagles since 1975.

The Eagles went into the game against Mali on the back of a 2-1 win against Ghana's Black Stars on Friday.

Finidi made some changes in his line-up against Mali with the trio of Kenneth Omeruo, Raphael Onyedika and Jamilu Collins starting.

"This is a team that keeps the ball very well but if we had our injured strikers available, we would have changed the one on the pitch immediately," Finidi said in his post-match.

"Losing two strikers forced us to play wide and as an aggressive team, we did all we could. And you know football is all about victory.

"Lost one and won one and we are not outplayed in the two matches gives me joy as a coach of the Super Eagles.

"I would have loved a different result in this game but that's not the case if we look at the performance of the players, it's commendable."
