Nigeria’s Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr is wary of Croatia’s midfield ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals which will be hosted by Russia between June and July.
The German tactician believes that Serbia has one of the strongest midfield in the world.
Croatia are in Group D alongside Nigeria, Argentia and Iceland.
They are expected to look to duo Luka Modrić of Real Madrid, and Mateo Kovačić, as well as Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitić, Inter Milan’s Ivan Perišić as well as Napoli’s Marko Rog in Russia.
