We cannot alow Nigerians to play freely'

"We won't go out on the field aiming for a draw. It will be a difficult match but we will play a winning game," he said.

"As seen in the case of Sani Kaita who was sent off the field, we need to put pressure on the Nigerians so that they become agitated and lose their temper. We cannot allow them to play freely on the field."

After plaudits for the 2-0 opening win over Greece, Huh was heavily criticised for his team selection for the loss to Argentina and is likely to shake things up for the do-or-die final match.

A switch to 4-4-2 would allow him to give striker Lee Dong-guk his first start of the tournament and the inspirational Park Ji-sung to move back out to the wide right position he favours.

Nigeria's coach Lars Lagerback has maintained his largely closed camp north of Durban but the death threats Kaita received after his red card cannot have helped their mood.

Defenders Taye Taiwo and Elderson Echiejile, who suffered injuries in the match against Greece, are recovering well and could be available for the Tuesday game.
