Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that the team will take serious every slight chance in their group showdown against Argentina on Tuesday.
Poised to get a point at minimum against the South Americans, the 64-year-old German stated that the encounter will be a difficult one but they will not play for a draw.
“Simply put, we must take even half chances, and be on the offensive as much as possible,” Rohr said on the NFF official website on Sunday.
“Perhaps, a draw could be good to qualify, but we cannot think and play for a draw. Sometimes, when you play for a draw, you get punched in the face late in the day.
“It will be a tough game and we must go with a tough mentality from the start to the end.”
Nigeria are placed second in Group D with three points behind leaders Croatia, who are already guaranteed a place in the Round of 16 having garnered six points.
The Eagles will slug it out against the two-time World Cup champions on Tuesday evening at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in their last group game.
