Croatia’s head coach, Zlatko Dalic has revealed that the Super Eagles of Nigeria, are an unknown, and will approach them with caution.
The Fiery Ones are making the trip to the World Cup for the fourth time and have been drawn in Group D, alongside Argentina, Nigeria and Iceland.
Dalic’s men will face Gernot Rohr’s men, three-time African champions, for the first time on June 16 and he will approach the match with caution.
“The Nigerians are an unknown team and we have to study them well,” Dalic told Croatian Football website.
“They are the first in their qualifying group without defeat, they are young, with the German leader at the helm. We have time to prepare everything, including the choice of camp.
“We are starting with the analysis to be ready for the World Cup, and the most important thing is for our players to be healthy and true, and we will be looking for friendly rivals outside Europe, from Africa, because we all know most about Europeans. Argentina, but our strategy has to come down to strong rivals and strong matches.”
