Eagles stand-in skipper Nwankwo Kanu has said the players are devastated that they will not feature at next year’s World Cup in Germany.

"The whole team is sad," said Kanu after the match against Zimbabwe in Abuja.

"Not qualifying for the World Cup is a big loss but we have to look ahead and see how we can rebuild."
