A compact midfield is important against Croatia – Rohr

Coach Genort Rohr has admitted that the Super Eagles will need to be effective in the middle of the park if they are to have a chance of defeating Croatia at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. 

Nigeria and Croatia will face off on the 16th of June when the World Cup comes alive in Russia. 

​”We have to be sure that our solidity in defense, our organization is strong enough to resist Croatia who has one of the best midfield going to the World Cup, so we must progress, we are at the beginning of something beautiful,” Rohr told Omasports.

”I hope it will be a beautiful adventure for us at the world cup. But you see even if we won against Poland, I think we were lucky, we don’t believe we are the favourite in the group.

”We are number four in the group, When you see the other teams, even Iceland is better ranked than us, So let’s stay humble and work.”

Croatia scored 19 goals in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, with players classed as midfielders contributing to six of those goals.
