Head mentor (Coach) of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has conceded his group lost to Algeria, in light of the fact that their rivals "executed their squeezing eminently and discovered great arrangements in the midfield".
Nigeria neglected to meet all requirements for the last of the current year's Africa Cup of Nations, in the wake of losing toward the North Africans on Sunday.
A William Troost-Ekong claim objective gave the Desert Foxes the lead, before Odion Ighalo leveled from the spot after the break.
With the game hoping to head into additional time, Riyad Mahrez ventured up and crushed a free-kick past Daniel Akpeyi.
Addressing the media after the match, Rohr stated:
"They executed their squeezing greatly and discovered great circumstances in the midfield. We couldn't discover an answer and we couldn't find our wingers.
"My group is as yet youthful and they will even now improve strategically later on and they will do it.
"We are miserable we lost, the players played for additional time yet we lost in the last moment to a decent objective.
"They were better in the primary half yet we yielded a claim objective and lost in the latest possible time. We are pitiful yet congrats to the victors."
