The way some people describe Modric, Rakitic and Kovacic aka the Croatian midfield trio you would think that they were the second coming.


These three have 233 caps between them and have scored 27 goals. WTF!! Collectively, 19 assists for Croatia.

Name, Caps, Goals
Kovacic, 39, 1
Rakitic 90, 14
Modric, 104, 12


We are unfortunate/fortunate not be My previous prediction of 3-1 has now been upped to 4-1 in favor of Nigeria.

And by the way, Mandzukic??? Are you guys kidding me. The man is like 50 years old and managed 7 goals all year.

Abeg go siddon.


Now, I am predicting the aggressive forecast that the Super Eagles don't just top the group but collect ALL the points.

Start the abusing immediately.

Look at this MUMU. 27 goals between 3 midfielders? How many has Mikel, Onazi, and ndidi scored for us within the same period? Less than 10. Do you think it’s easy playing for the best 2 teams in the world and even starting?? We shouldn’t overhype Croatia or think they’re unbeatable but we have to give them their due respect. They obviously have better players than us but we can BEAT them

I reject the idea that they have better players than us. They have players in better clubs than us. That is a fact.

I was about to say, what kind of one sided analysis is this? What about OUR midfield, how many have they scored, how many have they assisted? They are better than us on paper, but on green grass we will see, but no point trying to down play their class.

Highbury you might reject that ideas but it’s still fact. We can also take solace to the fact that prior to us playing Algeria at calabar, Algeria had better in form players at that period but we still won that game. Croatia has better players but we can beat them

Sometimes the threads are based on emotions,you state facts that are impressive but than say Nigeria will top the group (which is possible),I was expecting you to also give us the facts on Nigeria’s midfield to justify your notion!

No need for facts on Nigeria's midfield. Croatia has scored almost all those goals in ten years. At the rate of 2.7 goals per year from one youngster, one overrated schemer and one middle aged short visionary, I fancy our chances. Unless they have three feet or two heads, I'm not impressed and have little or no respect for a team that cannot even get out of the group stages.

If anything, they should be very scared that this will be their last Mundial and for some like Mandzukic that he never made it to the second round.

I love this site:)

Off course now. Mark my words, two of our goalscorers will be midfielders. I include the following players in our midfield:

Iwobi
Moses
Mikel
Onazi
J. Obi
Mikel

John12 and maceo4 are like a bunch of juveniles who know nothing but insist otherwise. You criticize someone’s opinion without bothering to offer any meaningful analysis of your own so, let me help you out. I have looked at 4 of our midfielders in a 4-4-2 formation because I think that’s the formation that takes the most advantage of our qualities and the players I’ve chosen are arguably the best we have for that formation. Mikel, Ndidi, Moses and Iwobi between them have 142 caps and 21 goals while the Croatians have 233 and 27. By the time our midfielders achieve 233 caps between them, they would have tallied close to 40 goals. So, on what basis do you insist that Croatia has better players than Nigeria? My advice to you 2 is to leave football discussions to more knowledgeable people :!: :!: :!:


Cheers.

Central midfield isn’t the only midfield position. If you want to look at our midfield then look at the collective midfield. It is not surprising to me that after I exposed your ignorance, you try to shift the goalpost. When was this ever just a discussion about central midfielders :?: :!:


Cheers.
