Let's not use the friendlies as a criteria to judge the Super Eagles just yet...I took my time to watch their last friendly against Czech Republic again and I can say categorically that they didn't perform badly and I believe that the coach have been able to fix the lapses as witnessed in both friendlies against England and the Czech Republic...let's believe in this team and give them a chance...for me, it's 2-0 in favor of Nigeria against Croatia...may the land of Russia favor us

Dyt:
There are plenty of familiar names in the Nigeria squad though. No less than seven Premier League players are present, and their forward line is awash with Premier League players past and present. Odion Ighalo, Kelechi Iheanacho, Alex Iwobi, and Ahmed Musa all compete for a starting berth, and it’s this attacking presence that will give them hope.

Indeed, Nigeria have scored in seven of their last ten matches overall, and they’re facing a Croatia side who have conceded at least once in ten of their last 15 matches. The favourites have scored in nine of these games though, whilst Nigeria have conceded in seven of their last ten too.
This is world cup

The issue is that many of the guys don't know the history of Nigerian football. All the times the Super Eagles have shocked the world was when they were least appreciated. 1994 World cup, 1996 Olympics (after losing ALL their friendlies), 1998 World cup, 2013 AFCON (still fresh), and the recent qualification matches.

I see them surpassing the group stage with considerable ease. We'll beat Croatia convincingly.

why are we judging the eagles because of the friendly they played...tell me how many friendlies we won prior to 1998 world and yet we got to the 2nd round...we did so well in our friendlies prior to 2002 Korea/Japan but we had just one point...

Croatia 1 vs Nigeria 1
Nigeria 2 vs Iceland 1
Nigeria 1 vs Argentina 1

I believe with this we can qualify for the next round but after that anything can happen..

Go...super eagles

People writing that we are in a difficult group should look at the other groups. Are there any easy groups? No.

And for people overhyping Croatia, I must tell you that they are just as fretful as we are of them. We are not Panama or Eritrea that any team can spank easily. That name alone "Nigeria" will give the Croatians a scare. As long as we convert our chances and manage set pieces, we will not only beat Croatia but give them a thrashing. Just like Croatia, Iceland is another overhyped team. The Icelandic team reminds me of Cape Verde going into the 2013 AFCON. They played good football even against Nigeria in a friendly but when they got into the tournament proper, we knew all that happened.

We should also remember 2002 World Cup. We did well in our friendlies but when we got into the tournament proper, we flopped.

In 1998, we lost all our friendlies, even getting spanked by Yugoslavia. Everyone wrote the team off, especially since they were in a group with Spain and Bulgaria. Spain had some of the best players in the world then and some of them had just won the UEFA Champions League. Oliseh said then that he had never felt unsure as he felt after losing all the friendlies but when the team got on the pitch, they fought relentlessly and beat favorites Spain and then beat Bulgaria to qualify with a match still to play. They even topped the group.

This Nigerian team is over hyped, looking through their friendly matches, you will observe the team is toothless.
I still go with Croatia win, I can add Argentina straight win as well.
