: World Cup: Yobo anticipates open game against Bosnia


Super Eagles captain Joseph Yobo has said he expects Nigeria’s clash with Bosnia-Herzegovina at the FIFA World Cup on Saturday to be an “open game”.
The Super Eagles began their campaign with a disappointing 0-0 draw on Monday against Iran. They will now play Bosnia who lost to tournament’s favourites, Argentina 2-1 in the opening match in Group F.
Nigeria and Bosnia are expected to battle it out for the second qualification spot in the group and Yobo believes that result could go either way as both sides are seeking their first win.
“It will be an open game against Bosnia, who like us will be looking for their first win of the competition,” he said.
“I thought we played well against Iran, but we found it difficult to penetrate them. They always had 10 men behind the ball. Teams are defending well in this tournament.
“We now have to be more creative and believe in ourselves – if we don’t, we only have ourselves to blame.”
Nigeria round off the group stage with their match against Argentina in Porto Alegre on June 25.
