Former Super Eagles coach, Jo Bonfrere says the team must pick maximum points against Croatia and Iceland in a bid to seal qualification to the knockout stages before facing Argentina at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The Atlanta Olympic gold medalist, who helped the Dream Team 1 defeat Argentina in the final of the football event, told a Lagos based radio station on Saturday that the team must get it right against Croatia and Iceland to book their place in the round of 16.
“The game against Croatia is the most important. Maybe Gernot Rohr has to play with five midfielders because they (Croatia) have two of the best midfielders in the world (Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic).
“Iceland is a different team but I believe Nigeria can beat them. It could be an easy game for Argentina that is why Nigeria need to have two good results against Croatia and Iceland,” Bonfrere said.
