The Match Against Croatia In World Cup Will Be The Toughest, Says Nigeria Coach Rohr

Nigeria head coach Gernot Rohr has identified the match against Croatia as the toughest his side will play at the Russia 2018 World Cup.
Apart from Croatia, Nigeria have also been drawn against Argentina, as well as European debutants, Iceland.

However, the June 16 clash with Croatia in Kaliningrad will be the most difficult because it will be Nigeria’s opener.
“The first game is always the most difficult,” Rohr said.

“It’s the first game and if we start well we can have a chance to go through.
"Croatia will be the most important game because they have technical quality and play very good football.

“I played with Bogdan at Hadjuk Split and I know that Croatian players are quick and technically very strong. 

"At the moment, they are one of the best teams in Europe and beat Greece 4-1 in the play-offs so we have to be prepared and ready for them.”
