"We didn't play well today because we were very tired after two days of giving our all. We got off to a bad start and Nigeria took advantage of our low morale. Personally, I'm happy to be my team's highest goalscorer as it's something to which every player aspires. I hope that I can play even better in the future." -Rashed Salem, Bahrain player
