Nigeria recorded her first win at the ongoing 2020 CAVB Tokyo women’s Volleyball Qualification in Cameroon after losing to Cameroon and Egypt by 3-0 major scores.

He said, “It was a good performance from the team today, we played really well though it was a tough game from Botswana. What I like in my young team is humility, solidarity and fighting spirit.

“I am happy we could deal with the danger they posed and being the third match of the qualifiers, it is a joy for us.

 “They (Botswana) have a good team and unfortunately, we lost the second set which was a shock for us and we had to recover from this and with our attitude, we had to make them tire out to get the result”.

He further said, ““I will not single out any player for praise. This is a sweet victory for us and it was only possible by teamwork. Everyone played his part and at the end, we are happy to have won the match.

“However, our focus is now on the match against Kenya Thursday. We will do everything within our powers to give Kenya a good fight”.
