Super Eagles Release Official World Cup Team

Also, Croatia and first-timers Iceland, both in Group D, Nigeria's group, earned 42.8 percent and 45.2 percent respectively.

"Top, top players, but we have top players in our ranks", Dalic said. Capped a solid showing with a cool spot kick to seal a first opening match victory for his country at the World Cup in four attempts. It would be interesting to see how they fare against Argentina in their second game.

While dominating for long periods, Croatia struggled to penetrate the Nigerian defence and failed repeatedly to find the target with speculative shots from well outside the penalty area.

Oghenekaro Etebo, up until that point one of Nigeria's best performers, was wrong-footed and bundled into his own net.

"It is only right that there are expectations of us, but first and foremost we expect of ourselves more than anyone else".

Nigeria came close to drawing level but Iwobi's strike was blocked by the Croats defenders as they led by a lone goal at half time.

Modric later converted a penalty in the 71st after William Ekong held onto Mario Mandzukic.

"Sometimes we were a little bit naive on set pieces but we will work on it".

Stricter control by German-born coach Gernot Rohr and a much more efficient administration are among the reasons for the change in approach, setting a platform for a strong World Cup challenge. However, if the Eagles are to truly overachieve, he will need to give them free rein, and let the madness in.

Despite fears pre-match, there was no reports of any racist chanting from among the near-capacity crowd in Kaliningrad.

Liverpool unable to secure Fekir deal
