Moses: Super Eagles Determined To Beat Strong, Talented Croatia

By Hanifat Mustapha:
Super Eagles forward Victor Moses has urged his Super Eagles’ teammates to remain focused as they begin their Russia2018 World Cup campaign against Croatia on Saturday.

The Chelsea star apologized to fans for their poor performance in the friendly games but vowed to be in their best form against Croatia.

“We’ve come here a long time here at Esentuki, but I think you can see in the training that we were doing very well. Now there is a match with Croatia, a very strong team, but we are gunning for the win,” he told Croatian outlet

“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.

“Yet these were just friendly matches, although we were sorry we lost, especially against England. But we look good at this point; we will be good in opening game against Croatia.

“Croatia is a great team with many top players; they are strong individuals and team. They have a particularly strong midfield and attack, the most important thing for us is to be concentrated, then we can beat Croatia.

“The most important thing is not to lose this first game because they are sometimes the most important. Croatia can beat anyone, but Nigeria can beat Croatia. We’ll have to do it like a team.”

Moses chose no country as his favorite to win the World Cup.

“Everything can happen in our group, all teams can advance,” he added.

  • Moses needs to play for the team and not just with the team, no need to play to the gallery at any point, pass the ball, to drag to play all the free kicks, except that’s the coach instruction. no point over dribbling at any point. defend when team is under pressure. Up eagles
