Russia 2018: Croatian Stars Wary Of Dangerous Super Eagles

By Adeboye Amosu: Croatian midfielder, Mateo Kovacic and winger, Marko Pjaca, are expecting a tough opening fixture against Nigeria at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.‎

The Europeans who will also confront former champions Argentina and debutants Iceland in Group D of the tournament will face the Super Eagles on June 16 at the Kaliningrad Stadium.

Kovacic, who plays for European champions Real Madrid describes the Super Eagles as a tricky opponent but states that his team will go all out for a win against the three-time African champions.

“Argentina has a great team, we got to just know how good Iceland is in the qualifiers and African teams are always tricky to play against. But just like I am sure we are facing 3 very good opponents, I am sure that we will enter each game with plan to win and get 3 points,” Kovacic tweets on his Twitter handle.

Pjaca, a winger who has been capped 13 times by Croatia and currently in the books of Italian side Juventus labels the Super Eagles a dangerous opponent.

“A tough group, but we knew we had no easy opponents. Argentina has the top stars, Iceland who, after the excellent European championship, continued the series of great results and dangerous Nigeria. It will certainly be difficult for us, but it has to be,” reads a Tweet on Pjaca’s Twitter handle.

    For me, this group is very difficult. Croatia is going to be hard to Crack and Iceland also will be very challenging. I watched both teams video tape on YouTube, Nigeria should be very prepare for the world cup. Apart from beaten Argentina, they are the weakest team in our group and they will prove something that they were one of the former world champion. So, the earlier we prepare the better. God bless Nigeria!!!
