FIFA World Cup

Rohr confident Eagles will defeat Croatia

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.
