Super Eagles’ midfielder, Wilfred Onyinye Ndidi has played down suggestions that the team is under pressure heading into Tuesday’s make or mar clash against Argentina, AOIFootball.com reports.

The Leicester City forward told members of the press after the team’s light training session on Saturday evening that the team will remain focused and won’t allow complacency set into their game.

“There is no pressure for us going into the game against Argentina; we know it will be a very difficult one for us but we will draw confidence from the win against Iceland.

“We won’t be complacent against them because we know they have very good players, but names don’t play football, so we are just going to go out and give our best to ensure victory,” Ndidi said.

When asked what changed in the second half against Iceland, the Premier League Best Tackler revealed that the team knew they needed to be more urgent with their movement to ensure victory.

“There were no much changes, just a little pep talk because during the first half we played so deep; so we just had to come out and push more and that gave us all three points, Ndidi concluded.
