Nigeria vs Croatia: Rohr reveals players that will start 2018 World Cup opener
Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has admitted that he knows his starting XI for their 2018 World Cup opener against Croatia.
In an interview with SportingLife, Rohr stated that he will stick with the players that helped Nigeria qualify for the tournament.
The Eagles have not used same line up in their friendly games in preparations for the World Cup, leading to fears that the German might not know his best side.
“I know my starting 11 for the first game of the World Cup. I have kept faith with the players that helped us during the qualifiers.
“I can only change in case of injuries. I collect video tapes of our opponents friendly matches and constantly watch them,” Rohr said.
Nigeria will take on the Czech Republic in their last friendly match on Tuesday, before leaving for Russia.
