As I learnt, their preparation towards the competition wasn't all that good. Poor preparation, the bane of Nigerian sports.

I learnt that the players have not really had sufficient time to play together to gel before the commencement of the competition. undecided

The Ivorians refused to go away in the last 2 quarters and should have won really. They missed two shots with less than 5 seconds left.
