"We Die There In The Next Game" - Wilfred Ndidi

Wilfred Ndidi has stated that Nigeria’s players are now looking forward to their next game against Iceland on Friday at Volgograd Arena after failing to impress in their opening 2018 World Cup tie.

On Saturday, the three-time African champions succumbed 2-0 to Croatia and will have to secure a win against Heimir Hallgrimsson’s men to brighten their chances of avoiding an early exit from the competition.

 The Leicester City midfielder said the Super Eagles have put the setback behind them and now focused on a better display on Friday.

“Even though we are players, we are also Nigerians. The loss is behind us, we die there in the next game,” Ndidi tweeted.

The three-time African champions have only failed to make it to the second round of the competition in 2002 and 2010 editions.

Nigeria face a tough task against Iceland who stifled Argentina to earn a 1-1 draw in their opening game​ on Saturuday​.
Ndidi, who was one of the nine players from the Super Eagles squad to have made their debut in the defeat, stated that the players are prepared to literally die on the pitch to get a win which will boost their chances of advancing to the round of 16.
