The Super Eagles are united more now than ever as they head into a crucial second group match at the FIFA 2018 World Cup.
A lackluster performance in the 2-0 defeat to Croatia was well below the expectations of fans and some of the players, including Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, but the team want to turn that into positive energy ahead of Friday’s crunch game.
Speaking ahead of the tie against Iceland, Eagles forward, Odion Ighalo said although the players were a united front even before the tournament, they’re finding out, how much more stronger they are as a unit.
Ighalo, who started in a lone striker’s position against Croatia, told Supersport.com there exists a sense of belief among the players that Friday’s game will be better.
He stressed the team had concentrated on creating chances and taking them.
‘We are united. We were united even before the world cup, but, you realize that with difficult situations the bond among us as players grows stronger.
‘The team didn’t create many chances against Croatia and we’ve been working on that aspect of our game and hopefully, we’ll see that improvement in our next matches,’ Ighalo explained.
