Victor Moses is confident that he and his Super Eagles teammates will prove his Chelsea teammates and doubters wrong at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The Super Eagles of Nigeria have been drawn in the same group as two-time champions Argentina, 1998 Bronze winning team Croatia and Iceland in what is regared as the group of death.
According to the Chelsea star, who spoke to the UK Mirror, he believes the Albiceleste, though with arguably the best player on the planet, would be very afraid of 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.
“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 said.
Nigeria and Argentina will lock horns on June 26 inside the Krestovsky Stadium, St. Petersburg in the last group game.
