Zlatko Dalić, a Croatian football coach, stated that Nigeria’s Super Eagles only have three fast players, ahead of his side’s clash with Nigeria in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The 51-year-old coach expects Gernot Rohr’s men to be a threat on the counter attack with the trio when they clash on Saturday in their World Cup opener at Kaliningrad Stadium.
Sportske Novosti has quoted Dalic saying: “It was a clean game, and that is what will be our game with Nigeria. They have firm formation and then open up in counter attacks with three fast players.
”We have to know what is waiting us and this was a good test for that. But, I say that we have to be better in some elements of the game.”
