Super Eagles winger Ahmed Musa believes the underdog tag already labeled the African champions could ease pressure off them when the World Cup officially kicks off.

Nigeria have won none of its World Cup warm-up matches. The coach Stephen Keshi-led squad bid its London fans farewells in a 2-2 draw against Scotland at Craven Cottage, followed with a goalless draw against Greece and Saturday night’s 2-1 loss to hosts USA.

“I am assuring Nigerians that we are equal to the task and will represent Nigerians and Africans well in Brazil,” Musa told

“Nigerians will see the real Super Eagles when the World Cup starts.”

Argentina and Bosnia-Hercegovina, who have both won all of their pre-World Cup tune-up games, are favourites to emerge from Group F. Nigeria and Iran are considered figureheads.

Musa says the lack of respect the Nigerian team have attracted prior to kick-off will ease off pressure from the side.

“I am happy that people are not talking about us as favourites in our group, it is a good omen for the team,” he stressed.

“But we are professionals who know what it means and takes to play in the World Cup.

The CSKA Moscow forward also called rallied for support from Nigerians.

“We are here to represent the nation so we expect Nigerians to be behind us and support us as we won’t let them down,” he added.

Nigeria start their campaign against Iran on June 16, before playing Bosnia and Argentina.

Musa has since returned to full training with the squad.
