Goals from Maxwell Effiom, Henry Offia, Ayotomiwa Dele-Bashiru, and Aliu Salawudeen helped Paul Aigbogun’s side kick off their campaign with a 4-0 demolition of Qatar on Friday.
After USA lost 2-1 to Ukraine in their opener, Nwosu believed the Americans will be firing on all cylinders in their quest to reach the knockout stage of the competition.
“They should approach the game with all seriousness. That we won the first game does not mean we have to take our eyes off the pedal,” Nwosu told Goal.
“It is when we win the second game we can be celebrating, because once we win against USA, then we have qualified for the next round.
“I will plead with them that they should take the game with every seriousness it deserves, at least get a draw. They should go for a win and if it ended in a draw, good for them too.
“USA will come strong against Nigeria after they lost their opening game that is why the Flying Eagles have to be well prepared for them.
“They want to qualify to the next round as well, so we must be ready to work harder to get a good result in the game.”
The Flying Eagles lead the Group D table on goal difference as they are tied on three points with Ukraine, while USA and Qatar are placed third and fourth respectively, after both lost their opening games.
