Moses had dribbled his way into Poles penalty box in the 61st minute and an extended leg by Marcin Kaminski. obstructed his advance towards goal.

“For sure it was a penalty when I was fouled, the referee made the right decision. It was a good win for us,” Victor Moses said at the mixed zone.

“Poland has many good players. They attacked especially well after conceding the goal, but we showed more character today.

“We wanted to enjoy the game and simply win. We believe that during the World Cup, we will manage to go as far as possible.”

Lewandowski said that referee Michael Oliver made a mistake in awarding the kick.

“I think that Nigeria did not create too many chances. It was the penalty incident, which probably was not.

“The referee told me that he whistled because he saw the reaction of Kamyk (Marcin KamiDski).”
