Led by Ladan Bosso, the team required at least a draw to advance to the semi-finals.

This defeat marked their second loss in three group-stage encounters.

Their campaign began with a 2-1 loss to Uganda, but they managed to recover with a victory over South Sudan.

However, their inability to secure even a single point meant they couldn’t progress alongside Uganda to the final four.
