Stephen Keshi has admitted his players were “nervous and unsettled” in their goalless draw with Iran, in their opening game at the 2014 World Cup. The Super Eagles dominated possession, but failed to create clear goalscoring chances, as the Iranians stood their grounds defensively. Keshi said the African champions must do better in their next game against Bosnia-Herzegovina or else their stay in Brazil could be over.
- “The boys were too nervous and unsettled,” he told Optima Live. “You don’t do that at this stage.“It happens in football. We really didn’t perform as expected but we have to move on.“I wanted a win but must take a draw. We must do better to get a win against Bosnia.”
Nigeria play Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday.
