Yobo Expects Open Bosnia Game

Yobo Expects Open Bosnia Game

–Eagles captain confident Nigeria will triumph

Nigeria captain Joseph Yobo expects his country’s FIFA World Cup clash with Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday to be an open affair. Stephen Keshi’s men began their campaign with a disappointing 0-0 stalemate against Iran on Monday, while Bosnia-Herzegovina opened up with a 2-1 defeat to Group F favourites Argentina 24 hours earlier.

Nigeria and Safet Susic’s side are widely expected to battle it out for the second qualification spot in the pool, behind Argentina.

And Yobo believes both teams will therefore approach this weekend’s meeting in Cuiaba with an attacking mindset.

“It will be an open game against Bosnia, who like us will be looking for their first win of the competition,” he said.

“I thought we played well against Iran, but we found it difficult to penetrate them. They always had 10 men behind the ball. Teams are defending well in this tournament.

“We now have to be more creative and believe in ourselves – if we don’t, we only have ourselves to blame.”

    Many Nigeria football fans dont even have time to read any news about Eagles.What Yobo is saying is that Bosni & Hezegovina are going to play out draw against Iran as Eagles did? They have failed totally to make use of a seemingly best option of winning the match against Iran (a beatable team) in their group and are nursing the ambition of winning Bosnia and pulling off a draw against Argentina to make it to the next round.

Week heart soldiers like you you went out to disgrace the country and Africa in general saying you are the champion of Africa having nothing to show for it. In fact all of you are a disgrace to our beautiful and bless country NIGERIA. GOD BLESS NIGERIA
