Keshi: I never think about losing

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has revealed that he is targeting victory in  the Super Eagles final Group F clash with Argentina Wednesday.

Even a loss against the South American opponents would be adequate for the  African champions to progress to the next round provided that Iran do not  get a victory against already eliminated Bosnia and Herzegovina.

‘’We can win, of course. Let’s get the win even try to be the group  leader. We defeated Bosnia, we played a good game, we can get another win.

‘’I never think about losing. We know we can qualify even in defeat, but I  do not think about it.

‘’If I lose, I’ll have to pray for Bosnia to get points from Iran and I do  not have to do that. I have to prepare my team to win,’’ Keshi  said.

The Nigeria squad arrived Porto Alegre, venue of the meeting with the  Albicelestes, on Monday afternoon and will have a short rest before  leaving for the Arena do Grêmio for a workout.

The Super Eagles have never beaten Argentina in three previous meetings at  the World Cup.
