Bryan Idowu has said he has never been prouder to be part of the Super Eagles squad after the way the players faced up to the defeat to Croatia.
The Eagles’ adventure at the World Cup got off to a catastrophic start with a 2-0 defeat in the Group D opener but Idowu says the players haven’t shirked responsibility, impressively so, according to the Amkar Perm man.
“I am more proud than ever to belong to this group, which is like a family. In difficult times, the biggest show their faces,” Futbalgalore.com reports Idowu as saying.
“Everyone is convinced we can turn this around. The important thing is the confidence we have in the squad.
“We’re not dead. Losing was a blow for everyone but we must have the same mentality as through the years.”
“Individually everyone wants to play but the most important thing is that the team can win and get the essential three points.
