Nigeria skipper Joseph Yobo has vowed that the African champions will fight to win their World Cup Group F match against Bosnia-Herzegovina today.
Bosnia lost their opening group game 2-1 to Argentina, while Nigeria were held to a goalless draw by Iran.
“We have to fight to win,” a bullish Yobo told AfricanFootball.com in Brazil.
“We know it will be very, very difficult against Bosnia. They lost their first game, we drew ours. They will come at us, we will go at them because both teams want to win.
“Had we won against Iran, it would have been a different story. But the ball is still in our court and we will grow from strength to strength.
“It will be an exciting game, very different from the game against Iran, who sat back in their defence.
“It’s a must-win for both nations and as current African champions we are aware of the expectations. We will do our very best to make Nigeria proud.”
Lazio midfielder Ogenyi Onazi told AfricanFootball.com they have enough information on Bosnia going into the World Cup cracker.
“We have some information about Bosnia. One of their players is my teammate at Lazio and there is another one who plays for Roma and I have played against him,” he revealed.
“We have watched their video clips, we are ready to use the information to be successful in the game.”
