Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi was quick to deflect praise from himself and to his players after a historic African Nations Cup title win.
Keshi became only the second man to win the Nations Cup as both a player and coach but said his players should take the credit.
"It is their trophy," he said. "I always believed in them right from our training camp in Portugal when I told them that they could win the trophy.
"But they didn't believe me at the time and thought I was just talking. But they began to believe when we got here, and I must say I am happy for them because they did all we asked of them.
"You can't ask for a better group of players."
