Enyimba skipper Chinedu Udoji has admitted Nasarawa United were the better team and so deserved to be the ones in this year’s Federation Cup final.
A first half penalty goal by Seun Sogbeso proved to be the difference between the two premier league clubs in Ibadan on Saturday.
They will now face FC IfeanyiUbah in the cup final.
“Nasarawa deserved their victory, they are the better side," simply said Udoji.
"But I can't believe my eyes that we are out of the Federation Cup.
"Our dream of picking a trophy has come to an end. It is unfortunate that all the efforts of the season have now come to nothing."
Udoji continued: "That's football for you, this was not our season, so unfortunate that with recruitment of some of the best players in the league, we ended up not returning to the continent."
"A big lesson to the team and the management. So many factors were responsible for our late distraction from the league and the FA Cup.
"But we will still bless God for an injury free campaign."
