Croatia Vs Nigeria 2018 Match Preview

No team has the experience of playing against each other as this will be the first meeting of Croatia and Nigeria. So what could be the better competition to face each other than the World Cup?

Nigeria has played 6 FIFA World Cups in which they qualified for the round of 16 three times but never gone beyond that. Meanwhile, the European side has appeared in 4 editions. FIFA World Cup 1998 was the best for Croatia in which they finished at the third place.

Croatia was undefeated in its first 36 home matches. The run ended with a big defeat to England in September 2008. It was named FIFA’s “Best Mover of the Year” in 1994 and 1998, the only team along with Colombia to win the award more than once.

Obafemi Martins and Ahmed Musa are the only active players of Nigeria’s top goal scorers who are playing since 2004 and 2010 respectively. This World Cup could be the last for both players. Fans have huge expectations from both players.

Predictions

We’ve seen dominance from European teams in past few decades in almost every competition. So Croatia has a little bit of advantage over Nigeria due to the presence of experienced and balanced squad. But Nigeria is also likely to score in their very first game of the Football World Cup.

Prediction: Croatia: 3 – Nigeria: 2
