Balogun doubtful, Eagles land in Kaliningrad for Croatia tie

Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has tipped Nigeria to beat Iceland in their next World Cup match following the 2-0 defeat to Croatia on Saturday.

The Eagles put up an abysmal display as they were outclassed by Croatia in Kaliningrad on Saturday evening and with Icelend – who held Argentina to a 1-1 draw in their own opener – next on the horizon, Omeruo is confident.

“It is going to be a difficult match for us because you cannot rule out a team who drew with Argentina and knocked England out of Euro 2016 tournament need.

“We need to prepare very well for them and am sure we can beat them because we have quality players who can get the job done.

“Winning against Icelead will keep our hope of qualifying for the second rounder alive. He assured

He went further to say that he has no mixed feelings not starting the game

“We are a team, any one could be called upon to start the game that is why we have 23 players in the tournament.

“If I am been given a chance, why not? I will grab it with both hands. I am a professional, I should be ready to play at any given time am called upon.

“I want our fans to still keep faith in the team and continue praying for us. We know what we need to do against Iceland and Argentina, we will do our best not to disappoint them. He concluded.”
