They beat us last year and we were determined not to let that happen again. It was a very tough match but we took our chances up front and that made all the difference. Ogbonnaya Okemmiri, Nigeria player

We started well but we underperformed in the second period, made some really stupid mistakes and paid dearly for it. Nigeria are an immensely strong, physical side, and we've just got to put this defeat behind us and start thinking about our next game. Hector Petrasso, Argentina coach

We knew it wasn't going to be easy at all but we got frustrated too easily at the start, and that was a mistake. That anxiety worked against us. We really wanted to start with a win but we didn't play well and ended up paying for it. Facundo Minici, Argentina forward
