Dogara urges Super Eagles to make Nigerians proud

Social media reactions to the Super Eagles' official native attire for the World Cup

Both Nigeria and Croatia will seek a winning start on Saturday as they bid to get out of a tough Group D featuring Iceland - who finished about Croatia in qualifying - and two-time champions Argentina. "We had it in the qualifiers", he told a pre-match news conference. As a Nigerian I will predict a draw for the Super Eagles, but in reality, Croatia have this game 2 - 0 (my predictions are always wrong). "We have to control the game, that's our job".

China-based veteran playmaker John Obi Mikel‚ Chelsea forward Victor Moses and young Arsenal attacker Alex Iwobi are the stars of coach Gernot Rohr's current Super Eagles.

"Honestly, we have to get our tactics right on the spot because if you watch our game against England, especially in the first half, we were exposed and could have been blown apart by a more clinical side", Adepoju said. "But of course some luck and many other things have to come together".

"We know this pressure".

Luka Modric insists Croatia's golden generation are under no extra pressure in Russian Federation, even though it could be the last World Cup for several members of their talented squad.

Much has been made of the risk of black players in Russia being targeted by the type of racist abuse that has dogged the Russian game for decades. We have players who do not play in these leagues or are not in their teams.

Their lurid green, black and white chevroned home kit sold three million replicas ahead of its release last week - and inspired dozens of knock-off versions from shrewd street vendors in Lagos.

He said he trusts the Nigerian team to make the country proud in Russian Federation.

'The camp has been quite disciplined and there has been good unity in the team'.

There are, however, better groups to be the second-best team in, as the group D runners-up will most likely see themselves facing the most talented team the French have fielded in at least two decades.
