Bosnia is determined to pack knockout punch to Nigeria

By Staff Reporter

Bosnia-Herzegovina coach Safet Susic believes there is plenty more to come from his side as the World Cup newcomers look for their first win of the tournament at the expense of Nigeria.

A good showing in their Group F opener against Argentina led to a narrow 2-1 defeat as Lionel Messi scored one of the goals of the competition to date.

With Nigeria and Iran holding each other to a goalless draw in a game bereft of quality, Susic now wants to see his side push on and progress into the knockout stages behind Argentina.

"We haven't shown everything we are capable of yet," he said.

"I hope that Argentina will win their other two games, because if they do then the second spot will be between Iran, Nigeria and Bosnia. I am convinced that we still have everything to play for."

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi admits his players need to perform better, saying: "Yes, we need to work on scoring goals."
