Nigeria finally got their 2018 World Cup in progress with a 2-0 triumph over Iceland that had blown Group D wide open, but the Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr believes the world could be some way from seeing the best for Super Eagles.
Speaking in a press briefing after the game Rohr said:
“What I like in my young team is humility, solidarity, and fighting spirit,” .
“I thought before this World Cup we were here to learn.
“I think this team will be ready in 2022 and this World Cup is coming early, but we have a good chance to win against Argentina.”
Ahmed Musa scored twice to break Iceland’s World Cup dreams and his goals were celebrated as far away as Argentina, such were the repercussions they had on the rest of the group.
Musa himself was under no illusion about the herculean task ahead of his side, with the final Group D clash to come against the wounded Argentina side that will be out for a win.
“I think scoring against Argentina isn’t that difficult for me,” Musa said.
“We know the importance of the game. It’s a do or die, we have to win.”
