Croatia striker, Nikola Kalinic has stated that Zlatko
Dalić’s men have the quality to beat Nigeria in their
Group D clash at the Kaliningrad Stadium on Saturday.

match against the Super Eagles with the right attitude
that will give them victory over Gernot Rohr’s side.
The AC Milan star, however, said Croatia must show
respect to the Eagles who according to him have some
talented players in their squad.
“Croatia have good wingers and strikers and we are not
afraid, it’s a good idea to play and create opportunities
for the attackers,” Kalinic told reporters in Roscinac on
“We have better quality than Nigeria, but we must show
respect, they certainly have good offensive players, they
have shown themselves against England and will
undoubtedly be difficult, but we need to see where our
biggest chance to win is and we hope to open the
tournament with a win.
“If we have the right attitude and approach the match
the way we should, then we will win,” he said.
Croatia are in Group D of the 2018 World Cup
