Nigerian forward, Victor Moses has revealed that his Chelsea teammates have said that the Super Eagles will not be able to scale through the group stage of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
According to the Chelsea wingback, his teammates at the London club made the assertion after the Super Eagles were drawn in Group D alongside Argentina, Croatia and Iceland ahead of the tournament in Russia next year.
Moses, while speaking to the Mirror, Uk, noted that Croatia and Iceland will be difficult games for Nigeria, but however, stated that the Argentine National team will be scared of facing the Eagles
“We don’t want to play against Messi, but it is what it is. We’ve got to go and play our football and see what happens.
“After what Iceland did last year [beating England in the last 16 of the Euros], football nowadays, there’s no easy game.
“Argentina are going to be scared of us as well.
“It’s all about football at the end of the day.
“Everyone at Chelsea was saying we’re going to get a thrashing and we’re not going to make it through the group stage.
“Hopefully, we can go out there and make the nation proud and get out of the group,” Moses told Mirror, Uk.
