Fresh off a demoralising loss to Greece, Nigeria – pointless from their first two matches in South Africa – are still in with a faint shout of going through as they enter their Group B decider against Korea Republic.
"It's a cup final for us" is the assessment of cultured holding midfielder Dickson Etuhu, who has become the west African team's unofficial spokesman of late. Born in Kano State in the north of Nigeria, Etuhu moved with his parents to England at an early age and the Pidgin English heard around the team’s base camp is in stark contrast to his rather prim London accent. "This is a must-win for us. We're not happy about the way things have gone so far, but we still have a chance and all we can do is focus on getting the result we need," he added exclusively to FIFA.com.
