Isiaka Olawale, Nigeria forward
I think we've learned a lot at this tournament. We didn't manage to qualify for the quarter-finals, but we gained a lot of experience. We'll take all the positive lessons back home with us, and keep working hard to improve our future performances.  

Gabriel Agu, Nigeria forward
I'm leaving the tournament happy that I was able to score. Today we showed that Nigeria have good players, that we can play well and know what we must do. But this is football, and, although we fought hard in our two previous matches, we didn't manage to win the battle. We might have had more luck in another group, but starting off against Brazil is extremely difficult.  

Rashed Salem, Bahrain player
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.
