Ahmed Musa, has expressed optimism that the Super Eagles has what it takes to go beyond the second round of the ongoing FIFA World Cup hosted by Brazil.
The Eagles forward made this known in Porto Alegre after the Super Eagles booked their passage to the Round of 16 after 2-3 loss to Argentina.
The CSK Moscow international star, however, noted that the team needs hard work and dedication in order to advance to their next game.
He commended the team, and expressed believe that the African champions would get to quarter-final and even get a semi-final berth.
Musa acknowledged that his team put up a brave fight against Argentina in the second half of the game, and revealed that he was very happy to have scored two goals against a big team like Argentina featuring the likes of Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria.
“That game was very important in my career and I am very happy that I was able to score two goals in the match. They (Argentina) had the game in the first half and created more chances but we came back in the second half to put up a great display against them” he said. “We have the players and a great bench to go beyond the second round of the competition, but we must work harder in subsequent matches to achieve our target”.
The super eagles will play their next match on Monday against France.
