#SportsNews #Russia2018 Roberto Prosinecki the Croatian football legend says his country does not see Nigeria and Iceland as rivals.
This statement comes after Argentina, Croatia, Iceland and Nigeria were drawn in the same group for the 2018 World Cup.
Prosinecki said “If we have a top class – and we have it unquestionably – then we cannot talk about Nigeria and Iceland as rivals that can stop us from making it from the group”
He further said Croatia is a “top class” squad that has ambition and character, hence the Super Eagles of Nigeria can’t stop them.
“Respect and respect absolutely, but with the quality we have, we are far ahead of them.”
“Croatia has a fantastic team, has a long-standing generation that has shown its ambition and character and that is why we are optimistic of doing well in Russia.”
