Gernot Rohr just said Croatia are better than Nigeria and we really don’t know what he’s upto with the statement.
Nigeria will take on Croatia in the opening game on Saturday June 16 at the Kaliningrad Stadium. The Super Eagles will also face Argentina and Iceland in Group D of the summer’s World Cup in Russia. “We admire this team, but we do not plan to watch them when we play against them, we hope to fight. They are all wonderful players…playing in biggest teams in Europe…On paper with their names, #CRO are much better than us,” said Rohr.
Nigeria are making their sixth appearance in the 2018 tournament. The Nigerian national team topped topped with chart, averaging 25 years and 347 days old. They are closely followed by France and England squad, who average just 26 years and 18 days old. Rohr adds: ”But sometimes on the pitch, it could be different. We don’t have their big stars, but we try to play collectively with our young team.”
