Croatia star Luka Modric has said the Super Eagles remain a big threat to his side at the 2018 World Cup and should not be taken lightly.
”Nigeria like us have not been having nice results but it doesn’t mean they are a weak side,” Modric said in an interview with Croatia TV station.
“Like most African teams they are unpredictable, so we have to approach our game against them without putting their friendly results in mind.”
Nigeria are in Group D of the competition with Croatia, Argentina and Iceland.
The West Africans best outings have been second round finishes in 1994, 1998 and 2014 and would seek to better their performance in Russia.
