Nigeria vs Croatia: Atiku reveals why Super Eagles won’t lose World Cup 2018 opener

Nigeria’s former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar, is banking on history to see the Super Eagles get at least a point against Croatia, in their first Group D fixture of the 2018 World Cup.

Atiku said the Eagles have never lost their first game at the World Cup and remains confident ahead of Saturday night’s match.

“Our @NGSuperEagles have never lost an opening #WorldCup game to a European team.

“I am confident in the indomitable spirit of our Super Eagles that today’s game against Croatia will be no different,” he tweeted.

Nigeria will be desperate for a win against the Croats, so they can go top of the group, following Argentina’s shock 1-1 draw with Iceland in the first game.
