The Super Eagles put up a solid display against Jean -Louis Gasset’s men, who were restricted to few chances in the game.
The Portuguese explained that he mapped out the strategy for the game during his team’s training tour in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
“I started thinking about how to approach this game when we were in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
“Cote d’Ivoire is a strong team with good players, so we need to close down the space and defend very well.
“We know we have to work hard and not allow them play their football. The players did well to stick to our plan in the game.”
