Ahead of the all-important clash against Iceland, the Nigeria Football Federation has moved the Super Eagles to a secluded location to avoid distractions.
Barr. Seyi Akinwunmi, the First Vice President disclosed from Russia, on Tuesday, “We secluded them from the public to avoid distractions and we can tell you that the players have gotten over the loss and have even bonded together even stronger. They are very determined for Friday’s match and in a funny way, these things got them together as a unit.
“There are no injury concerns in the camp and everything we expect is in order. The players have held various meetings themselves and what we hear as outcome of those meetings have been very positive.
“We have had the Minister with us in the past few days and he has been very supportive and very understanding. I was very impressed when I spoke with him on the match when he warned against castigating the players for losing if we want to win our next game.
“On a final note, I think we should fight very hard on Friday to increase the prospects of qualifying if we beat our next opponent,” he said.
