SHOLA Ameobi says the Super Eagles are down but not out after their World Cup campaign got off to a slow start.
Ameobi came off the bench against Iran on Monday night, but he couldn’t fire the Super Eagles to victory.
And Stephen Keshi’s side have come under fire in Nigeria for their performance in the goalless draw ahead of tomorrow night’s Group F fixture against Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Ameobi – who has been released by Newcastle United after a 14-year first-team career at St James’s Park – remains positive.
“It’s a very proud moment for me,” said the 32-year-old. “Unfortunately, we could not get the win in that first game. We have to look at the positives.
“Hopefully, we can move on to the next game where, hopefully, we should have more attacking options.
“We need to learn how to break teams that set up negatively against us. We have to stay positive and take the right mentality to the next game.”
