Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has stated that he is confident his team can claim all three points in their World Cup opener against Croatia.
The Franco-German said in an interview on Téléfoot:
”Yes I’m impatient and a little excited too, we’re proud to have been the first Africans to qualify for the World Cup.”
“Now we have to make a good result at this World Cup .
“We have some hope of a good result in our first match against Croatia .”
It is notable that three-time African champions have not lost any of their opening game at the Mundial to a European country – won clashes against Bulgaria in 1994 and Spain in 1998.
The Eagles will play the Croatia national team on June 16 at the Kaliningrad Stadium.
