How will they cope against the guile of the Croats? we saw how they struggled with pace against Argentina in the last friendly game, the Croatian team packs alot of very technical midfielders... I'm sure the likes of Kovacic, Modric, Rakitic... need no formal introductions, ahead of the next friendly games we need to try out other defenders, Awaziem, omeruo...? I seriously hope we get to woo Akpoguma since he's the most likely to make a switch to Nigeria, good thing Rohr is sorting out our goal keeping issues with the recent discoveries of Uzoho and the and the German born kid Okoye.

Balogun will be perfect for Mandzukic. Good matchup

These are the strikers that Croatia has:

FW Ante Rebić
FW Andrej Kramarić
FW Nikola Kalinić
FW Mario Mandžukić


Please, let us know about the guile of these Croats . Thank you.

As for Kovacic (who is a benchwarmer in Croatia. They start Brozovic instead), Modric and Rakitic. I am sure Ndidi (one of the best defensive midfielders in Europe), Onazi and Mikel can handle their guile.

Croatia should be more worried about our pace. Do they have the players to match the pace of Etebo, the two Moses, Ighalo, Ebuehi and whatever players emerge between now the WC?

Nothing worries me about the Croatia team. However, I am concerned about the lack of pace at the back, especially with Balogun.

Croatia do not have fast forwards so will not be a threat on this area but Messi will be, as will Aguero. That second goal Argentina scored on Krasnodar showed what we will be up against.
