Ndidi Eyes Clean Sheet Against Brazil
Wilfred Ndidi Targeting A Clean Sheet Against Brazil
Ahead of Nigeria's first game at the FIFA U20 World Cup against Brazil, defender Wilfred Ndidi says he is targeting a clean sheet against Selecao.
"Just as strikers wish to score goals before games, same goes clean sheet for a defender, and in the Brazil game my aim is for us not to conceded," he told SL10.ng.
The vice captain of the Nigeria team, however, insists the job of defending is a team effort and not just a duty for the defenders.
"Our style of defending is as a unit, we defend as a team not just the back four but the entire team puts in a shift to aid us at the back," he said.
He rounded off by urging Nigerians back home to pray for them to overcome the Brazilians, as on their own part they have resolve to put in their best.
"We need prayers,from Nigerians watching us back home, on our part we will put in our best to put smiles on their faces by the grace of God."
