Croatia and Nigeria play in a World Cup match (Group Stage). These two teams have never played before, so this will be their first direct showdown.
The team had direct access to this group stage, so they will play their first match in this competition. The team arrives at this meeting after a victory with Senegal by (2-1). Croatia won 5, drew 2 and lost 3 of their last 10 matches for all competitions. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 6 times and only got 1 turn on the scoreboard. In the last 20 games in all competitions there are 1 periods in the spotlight: he suffered 6 of his 14 goals between the minutes (76′-90 ‘).
Croatia have never won the World Cup in their history, with their third-place campaign at the 1998 World Cup in France. In the World Cup Qualifiers, the team were in second place in Group I, behind the Iceland team. In the ten European World Cup qualifiers, Croatia were only twice beaten, one for Iceland and another for six wins and two draws. I believe that in this match, the Croatia team, needing to win to leave in front of Group D opponents of the World Cup, will be superior to the Nigeria team, as it has a better squad, especially in midfield with Rakitic and Modric, and showed in the Qualifiers that it is able to dominate more fragile opponents.
The team makes its debut in this edition of the competition, since they did not have to play any of the qualifiers that preceded this group stage. The team arrives in this match after a defeat with the Czech Republic by (0-1). In the last 10 matches played in all competitions, Nigeria have won 5, drawn 1 and lost 4. Defensive solidity has not been their strong point, having conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 games but their attack has marked regularity, having scored goals in 7 of the last 10 games. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 7 times but managed to turn the score in 3.
The Nigeria team has never won the World Cup Cup, has in its history three African Cup of Nations achievements, the last one won in 2013. It has as its commander the 64-year-old German coach Gernot Rohr who is ahead of the national team there were nineteen games, winning eleven wins, three draws and five defeats, but their opponents were not so strong, they were selections like Zambia, Cameroon, Algeria, African teams, which have no tradition in world football. Now in the World Cup the Nigeria team will have many difficulties, in this next clash against Croatia, should face a better structured and accustomed selection to play with major European teams.
