Nigeria’s FIBA World Cup Qualification Hangs By A Thread As D’Tigers Lose To Angola


D’Tigers of Nigeria face an uphill task qualifying for the FIBA World Cup 2023 after they lost 70-67 to Angola in their final Group E African qualifying game at the Palais des Sports de Treichville, Abidjan on Sunday, reports.

Josh Okogie missed a game-tying three points at the buzzer.

Nigeria lost the first quarter 16-18 but bounced back to win the second quarter 13-9.

The Angolans took control in the third quarter winning 23-26 and the D’Tigers lost 20-22 in the fourth quarter to lose the game 67-70.

Qualification for the FIBA World Cup 2023 is now going to be tough for the Nigerian men, who now need favours from other countries to make it to Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines 2023.

The permutation is for Ivory Coast to beat Cape Verde in their next match. And in the next window, Angola must lose their next two games, with Nigeria winning all their three games, one of which is against Angola who D’Tigers must beat by 10points.
