”This game is very important to us because it is very important to start winning, good result,” the winger told Croatian media Sportske Novosti.
”You have a particularly strong line and attack, the most important for us to be concentrated, then we can beat Croatia.
”The most important thing is to not lose this first game because they are sometimes the most important to qualify from the group. Croatia can beat anyone, but Nigeria can beat Croatia. We’ll have to make it as a team.”
The Eagles have not won their last three opening games at the World Cup, losing 1-0 to Argentina in 2002 and 2010, and playing out a goalless draw with Iran in Brazil 2014 World Cup.
