The opposite would be to harm the team, we must seek the collective benefit, we are 23, also those of the squad.“We are not playing well and we take charge of the results. We will not be responding to things that others do.”Nigeria coach, Gernot Rohr,  though is confident of getting the job done. “I thought before this World Cup we were here to learn.
