Croatia Striker Kramaric: Super Eagles Clash Will Be Tough

By Adeboye Amosu:

Croatia striker Andrej Kramaric is anticipating a tough encounter when the side face the Super Eagles of Nigeria in their opening Group D encounter at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.

Zlatko Dalic’s men will face the three -time African champions in Kaliningrad next week Saturday.

The Croats got a feel of an African opposition in Friday’s friendly 2-1 win against Senegal.

Senegal took the lead in the 48th minute through Ismaila Sarr, while Ivan Perisic levelled scores for Croatia on 63 minutes.

Kramaric netted the winner for the Croats with 12 minutes remaining.

“Nigeria encounter in Russia will not be easy,but I hope we can win, just as we did against Senegal,” he told reporters after the game.

Both countries will square up in a group D opener at the Kaliningrad stadium on June 16.

    Beating Senegal team in a friendly match does not mean you would beat Super Eagles in Russia.

    I watched the highlight of the match on YouTube yesterday and I believed Croatia is not super at all.

    This Croatia team will find it so difficult to cope with the Super Eagles next Saturday but my main fear is that Eagles always fears the big names and big teams but big names doesn’t play football. Therefore, Super Eagles have a lot of work to do about set piece.

    They must be organized in the back. They must attack together and defend together. By doing so, problem solved. Eagles did that against Poland and the Polish team found it very difficult to played their game. I am not seeing that spirit in Eagles anymore. What happened? I don’t know.

    However, this coach would be shocked at the end of the match by God’s grace. This is what coach Rohr was trying to do and he has attained his goal.

    He did that before we started our world cup qualifiers and he says, he wanted Cameroon to be the next Africa Champions and Nigerians did not understand him and they kicked against that. However, we never knew that if Cameroon be coming Africa Champions, there would be pressure on them. Which was eventually happened.

    So, my fellow Nigerians, we have nothing to be worried about. Simy and Enacho would be our main strikers in Russia. One touch one goal, that is what its needed in the Super Eagles team. We have a coach who knows what is at stake. So therefore, no wahala. God bless Nigeria!!!
