Luka Modric Croatia World Cup 2018

Croatia v Nigeria is the fourth World Cup 2018 match on TV this Saturday in what’s set to be a packed day of football.


Croatia’s midfield led by Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic are a serious force to be reckoned with, even if the nation has flattered to deceive in the past.

Nigeria have started slowly in their three most recent World Cup appearances, losing to Argentina in 2002 and 2010, while drawing 0-0 with Iran four years ago in Brazil. A fast start here could be crucial in a group that also includes the deadly Argentina.
