Croatia – Nigeria : Preview & Prediction
Croatia, which has Argentina in the pool, must go clear against Nigeria and against Iceland to qualify for the 1 / 8th finals. The last performances of the Croats were rather good since the selection of Dalic emerged victorious from his clashes against Mexico (1-0) and against Senegal (2-1). In contrast, Modric’s partners held up well against Brazil before bowing late in the game (0-2). Croatia will be ready for this first match against a Nigerian team that has been struggling since last March. Indeed, the selection of Gernot Rohr is looking for a success since 4 games since the latter, hooked by Rep.Dom.Congo (1-1), lost to Serbia (0-2), England (1-2) and the Czech Republic (0-1). Nigeria has not prepared this World Cup at best and its morale will be undermined by this series of bad results. Croatia is not the ideal opponent to revive …
