Kelechi Emeteole, Nigeria coach: We found it difficult to play relaxed football, and we also helped our opponents gain in confidence. I don't mind who we play out of Uruguay or Italy. We're ready to face either of them. If we actually get through to the final, I'd really like to face my brothers from Senegal, but if we're going to do that, we need to keep on working.
