Victor Moses and Nigeria will kick off their World Cup campaign on Saturday with a game against Croatia and Moses believes Nigeria can beat Croatia if they play as a team.
Moses insists it’s important Nigeria return to winning ways after some defeats in their warm-up games.
“This game is very important to us because it is very important to start winning and get a good result. We are optimistic, we want to beat Croatia,” said Moses.
“The most important thing is to not lose this first game because they are sometimes the most important to qualify from the group. Croatia can beat anyone but Nigeria can beat Croatia. We’ll have to make it as a team.
“You can see in the training that we were doing very well,’ noted Moses at the start of this latest challenge.
“We look good at this point, we will be good in the opening game. Croatia is a great team with many top players. They have a particularly strong midfield and attack. The most important thing for us is to be concentrated, then we can beat Croatia.”
