Leicester City and Nigeria forward Kelechi Iheanacho has said the Super Eagles are all pulling together after the defeat against Croatia.
In an interview with Futbalgalore.com, Iheanacho acknowledged the disappointment of the 2-0 loss and warned against taking Iceland for granted in the next Group D fixture.
But he said the squad is on the same page and eager to take to the field again.
“We didn’t leave things as we wanted but the group is strong, more united than ever and looking forward to our next game,” Iheanacho went on, according to Futbalgalore.com.
“Iceland will be a tough opponent but if we match their intensity that and play like we know we can, that will be key.”
Iheanacho added that he is hopeful of getting game time so he can make a contribution on the pitch.
“I’m proud of what I’m doing but I’m eager to win things,” he said.
“I have the dream of playing a large role in the World Cup and if I get an opportunity to play or help the group to win this World Cup it would be very important.
“Let us continue with the support from home or those who have come to Russia.
“This team is going to give everything and has given their all before. We will continue to fight at the World Cup, because we are hungry and because this team deserves to give everything.”
