On Saturday, the West Africans 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.
And the Leicester City midfielder said that the Super Eagles have put the setback behind them and now focused on a better display on Friday.
"The match against Croatia was disappointing,” Ndidi told Fifa website.
“However, we've moved past that disappointment and we're looking forward to the next game."
The three-time African champions have only failed to make it to the second round of the competition in 2002 and 2010 editions.
