Mandzukic: Croatia Will Qualify Ahead Of Nigeria, Argentina in Group D

Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic believes the team has the quality to scale through the group stage hurdle at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Zlatko Dalic’s men are in Group D with Nigeria, Argentina and Iceland.

“We’ve been talking about our chances for a long time, and we all know that we have a good team with good individuals. We have our goals, and we have what it takes to take first position in the group,” the Juventus forward told Croatia’s official website.

“We all have the intention to do something big, but we are not the only team that wants to achieve something, so that desire needs to be shown on the field.

“We qualified for the World Cup when it was hardest, and now we have a common goal, we are all focused on the first game, and the main thing now is to prepare for the game.”

The Vatreni will face the Super Eagles of Nigeria in their first game on Saturday at the Kaliningrad Stadium.

  • Talk of a dreamer. He’ll change the story come 16th June. The message from the Croatian camp is consistent: discordant. They’ll have a clear eye for a post-mortem come June 16th. Croatia must fall.

    Ariwo ko ni music. Let the Croates continue talking, while our boys do the business on the pitch on Saturday. That was exactly how the Spaniards and their coach were boasting in 1998 only to fall at the end. #SoarSuperEagles. Croatia must fall.

    Nigeria has no chance. Would be VERY lucky if the Super Eagles can draw.

    Nigeria has nice uniforms…but Croatia beats them in that category too.
