Andriy Shevchenko’s men defeated Lithuania 3-0 in Saturday’s European Championship qualifying game at LFF Stadium, Vilnius.
The West Ham United forward, who is banking on the support of their fans, is hoping his side can maintain their performances when they slug it out with the three-time Africa champions in Dnipro.
“Before the match [vs Lithuania], when we were going to the stadium, we saw how many of our fans were on the streets,” Yarmolenko told the FFU website.
“They were even more surprised when they went out to work out and saw how many were in the stands. Thanks again to them.
“I am sure that we will play with full force against Nigeria in the Dnieper as we will be supported by the fans.”
