Rakitic Looking Forward To Facing Messi At World Cup

Rakitic Looking Forward To Facing Messi At World Cup”

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has admitted his team will no longer surprise Argentina at next year's World Cup in Russian Federation after a recent 4-2 win in a friendly, while also revealing he will consider a friendly against Serbia to prepare for an opening Group D clash against Croatia.

Hosts Russia and Group A opponents Saudi Arabia will kick off this World Cup on June 14, and the final will be played on July 15, with both games held at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. This group football pundit believes will favor Nigeria as the Super Eagles can easily knock out Iceland and contend with Brazil and England. In 1995 at the Confederations Cup, and at the 2002 and 2010 FIFA World Cups in South Korea /Japan and South Africa.

Nigeria first played against Argentina in the 1994 World Cup.

Croatia have made it to the World Cup since picking up the bronze medal on their debut at France 1998, and boast a number of top players across Europe's major leagues.

Argentina did not book their spot in Russian Federation until their final qualifier, a 3-1 win at Ecuador on October 10, with captain Lionel Messi scoring a hat trick.

Victor Ikpeba was quick to point out that Nigeria have beaten the Argentines when it has not really mattered and it would be best they get their points in their opening two group games against Croatia and Iceland before the final game against Argentina so that they could go past the first round in Russian Federation.

He added that it was another opportunity for the Super Eagles to prove to the world that their recent 4-2 win against the South American giants was not a fluke.
