Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr makes bold statement ahead of Nigeria’s World Cup opener against Croatia




- Nigeria open their 2018 World Cup campaign against Croatia at the Kaliningrand Stadium on Saturday

- Both sides will be meeting for the first time in a competitive encounter this weekend

- Meanwhile, Gernot Rohr has insisted that his players are aware of what is at stake in that encounter

Super Eagles technical adviser Gernot Rohr says his players are ‘physically and mentally’ ready for their Russia 2018 opening Group D clash against Croatia on Saturday, June 16.

The Super Eagles are in the same group as the European giants, Argentina and Iceland and they will be hoping to surpass their second-round stage record this time.

Rohr during the team’s press conference earlier in the day claims they have corrected their errors in their last two test games, adding that they are not in the mood to play second fiddle at the Kaliningrand Stadium.
