Speaking with the players after their training at the Abuja Natiomal Stadium, Ndanusa said, “I must beg because I need the victory, please beat New Zealand to move on to the quarter-finals. The winner between Mexico and Korea would not pose any threat in your quarter finals match.

“The moment you are in the quarter-final stage, the remaining opponents would be afraid of you. So, go in there and beat New Zealand, which is your first hurdle”, Sani Ndanusa told the Eaglets.
