''They have players of great class. Is the eight, Michael, with a great vision and passing, also 10 (Abdul Ajagun), 9 (Olarenwaju Kayode) and 7 (Aminu Umar). But they also need to worry about our quality, " Varzeri was quoted as saying by futbol.com.uy.

In addition, Juan Verzeri picked the Nigeria selection as the best team in Group B, even though they lost their opener to Portugal 3 - 2.

''They are a team of great physical exuberance. We have seen the three games they played and all was well above rivals, even against Portugal, but lost 3-2,'' he said.

The winner of the Nigeria  - Uruguay match will lock horns with the winner of the clash between Spain and Mexico in the quarter-finals of the tournament.
