Speaking after the match, the Head Coach of Nigeria, Elishama Elam, said they were expecting a change in their fortunes from the second meeting with Cameroon.

He said they were very unfortunate to lose the second match.

“My girls did not do well in the first and second sets. Their performance was not alright. But it was unfortunate that they did not win their game.

“They listened to all the instructions we gave them. But the other team were with more advantage against us. We did not believe that they will defeat us again.

“But we will work on our lapses to win our third game. We need to go back to the drawing board and do the needful ahead of our third game on Monday.

“My players are good and talented players, and I need to work hard on them so that we can win our last match,” Elam said.

On his part, the coach of Cameroon, Emile Tong Tong, said they won their second game against Nigeria as a result of adequate preparation.

“The girls have been in camp since December and we have been training regularly, four days every week with serious training.

“We worked hard to deserve this victory, and we will work on our lapses to win our third game.

“We have played a lot of friendly games in Cameroon, and we will work hard to win our last match against Nigeria,” he said.

The Under-18 Girls and Under-19 Boys African Nations Volleyball Championship which started on Thursday are expected to end on Tuesday. (NAN)
