'Super Eagles working hard to put things right' after Croatia loss

The west Africans’ naivety was punished by the Blazers but they are optimistic of better displays in their subsequent games

Nigeria players have reacted to their defeat to Croatia, assuring that they are ‘working hard to put things right.’

Gernot Rohr’s men conceded a goal in each half in their opening World Cup game at the Kaliningrad Stadium to the disappointment of the nation's faithful.

Rooted to the bottom of Group D, a victory over Iceland in their next game will brighten their hope of qualification to the round of 16.

And, although, displeased with the loss, Victor Moses alongside John Ogu, Oghenekaro Etebo and Kelechi Iheanacho have taken to the socal media to express their optimism ahead of their tie on Friday.

“Disappointed with the result last night but we win together and lose together and will dust ourselves down and be ready to fight again. We are working hard to put things right,” Moses posted.

“Lose or Win, we will still keep learning and Working hard. Very disappointing result last night, hoping for a better result on the 22,” Ogu wrote.

“It was an honour to represent my country in the opening game of the World Cup. We will fight on and continue to do our country proud,” Etebo posted.

“We keep fighting our focus now on the next game,” Iheanacho wrote.
