Nigeria must play like Lion Hearts against Iceland in their group d clash at the FIFA 2018 World Cup, according to , Kanu Nwankwo OON.
The Super Eagles need to pick points to get their campaign back on track after a 2-0 opening game against Croatia and Kanu said he hopes to inspire the team with his presence.
‘I wasn’t going to sit at home and talk. I wanted to be here to see the Coaches and players to tell them what they need to hear.
‘I hope my presence here has made spirits soar in the locker room and that it reflects on the pitch,’ the former Forward told Brila.net.
He also said, ‘There’s a big spirit in this team, regardless of the defeat to Croatia. They must go out against Iceland now like angry Lions. But win or lose we are Nigeria and we must learn to support our team.’
