The Direct Knockouts are in full flow and the winner of this game cracks the Sem-Finals of the tournament. In this game, a red-hot Nigerian team will have to battle it out against Ivory Coast. More about NGR-W vs IVC-W Dream11 is going to be imparted here.
Nigeria is on a nineteen-game winning streak and plays some superb team basketball. Their defense is the catalyst that makes things easier on the offensive end. Nigeria can also go hard on the boards, create multiple offensive opportunities and their ace Ezinne Kalu knows when to take over games and when to act as a playmaker.
Ivory Coast has shown some fight during the tournament the team even gave powerhouse Mali a run for their money in the group stage. Cote d’Ivoire has a knack for getting offensive boards and also a couple of stellar offensive players in Diawara and Sahie. Can Cote d’Ivoire pull one off here? Highly unlikely but then sports can surprise any time.
