World Cup! Eagles To Battle Croatia Tomorrow @ 8pm (Drop Your Predictions)

Stakes can hardly be greater for Croatia and Nigeria in
their first round clash as a mistake here could likely
mean the farewell from the knockout stage ambitions.

The highly-important affair is scheduled for Saturday
evening at Kaliningrad Stadium.
Nigeria will certainly be a tough nut to crack for all rivals
in the group.
Gernot Rohr’s troops proved the quality by topping a
tricky qualifying group with 14 points from six matches
against the likes of Cameroon, Algeria and Zambia.
Croatia are hoping to see off Nigeria and put the pressure
away ahead of what could likely be the battle for the top
spot in the group later on against Argentina in the second
Team News
Croatia boss Dalic has the luxury of a squad free from
injuries ahead of the tie.
Our Manager Gernot Rohr does not have significant
injury woes either.

Nigeria likely starting XI

Uzoho – Troost-Ekong, Balogun, Abdullahi, Idowu –
Ndidi, Onazi – Iwobi, Mikel, Moses – Iheanacho/Ighalo.

Croatia likely starting XI

Subasic – Vida, Lovren, Vrsaljko, Strinic – Brozovic,
Rakitic – Kramaric, Modric, Perisic – Mandzukic.


Tough game but not a match we can’t get something
from. It would be interesting to see who starts between
Iheanacho/Ighalo . Honestly the latter was off the pace in
the friendly games and if he starts, he will need to
rediscover his goal-scoring from cause we will need it
badly in Russia.
Croatia do have many star players that can hurt us so
Ekong & Balogun will need to have the game of their life
in defense.
