Speaking to reporters at the Super Eagles base camp in Essentuki,Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses says the players were unhappy with their losses to England and Czech Republic in friendly matches before their trip to Russia for the World Cup.
The Nigerian Player of the Year has stressed that the Super Eagles will have to play collectively if they are to achieve success at the World Cup.
”We are looking forward to the upcoming game with the Croatian team, we had a good training last week, although before that we had friendly matches, we were annoyed with the defeats. I think that we look good at the moment,” Moses said.
Nigeria will take on Croatia in their World Cup opener on Saturday in Kaliningrad and Moses is fully aware of the strength of the opponents.
”Croats have a lot of individually strong players, they are strong. We need to be concentrated, it’s very important.
”We can achieve success with a collective game, each team can be a favorite in this group,” Moses added.
It is all but confirmed that Moses will play his third game at the World Cup against the Croats, barring an injury in training.
