''We have the youngest team in the World Cup, let them learn from this match and try to do better.
''We saw the good game of Iceland against Argentina, very strong team. We know that they are able to do very well, we also can do better than we did today.''
Nigeria will take on Iceland at the Volgograd Arena, Volgograd on June 22 before wrapping up group play against Argentina in Saint Petersburg four days later.
