Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa has stated that the team are in Russia to make a positive impact and he is confident they will qualify from their group ahead of Argentina, Croatia and Iceland, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.


Gernot Rohr’s men will face Croatia in their opening Group D fixture at the Kaliningrad Stadium on Saturday.


“We want to beat your team, and of course we do not want to lose,” Musa told a cross section of Croatian journalists after the team’s training in Essentuki.

“We are full of confidence, I believe in the ability of our team. You have seen today, the great atmosphere in our team. We are not scared, we’ve come here for great things.”

Aside from Croatia, the Super Eagles will have to contend with two-time champions Argentina and debutants Iceland for a place in the second round.

Musa, who spent last season on loan with CSKA Moscow from Leicester City, believes the Eagles will need at least six points to scale through the first round hurdle.

“Six points will be okay for us. Four points would be insufficient. I don’t think four will be enough. I think we must settle for six points,” he added.

He also singled out the duo of Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic as the key men for the Croats.

“Croatia has many top class players, but let me say that Modric and Rakitić are the best.”

Asked for his favourite to pick the number one spot in the group, the former VVV Venlo player did not hesitate to pick his nation.

“Nigeria of course,” he answered. “Even Argentina with Messi are not better than us.”

His exact quote...
Quote:
“We want to beat your team, and of course we do not want to lose,”


As opposed to the sensationalized header by the magazine.

he was responding to a close ended question from the croats press.
"who do you think would win between nigeria and croatia"
what is supposed to say?

There's a standard protocol of mutual respect at this level and it involve some degree of diplomacy.

You'll hear team say "we respect this team, they have good players but ee also believe in our own team. We are fully prepared for this game. We expect a tough game and we are fully prepared.

No be this "we want to beat your team, we go beat you. Na crush we go crush you" nonsense :tic:

I like his approach.

Tell them you are going to beat them
Then beat them
Then tell then you just beat them
