Coach of Sunshine Stars of Akure, Henry Abiodun has advised Nigerians not to expect much from the Super Eagles at the 2018 World Cup. He said considering the calibre of other Group D opponents, he does not expect Nigeria to progress pass the group stage of the 2018 World Cup. According to him, the loss against Croatia in their opening game means they are out of the competition already.
Croatia defeated Nigeria 2-0, in their opening game on Saturday, punishing them off their profligacy to defend corner kicks.
Abiodun said that he, unlike the ’emotional’ lot, was not surprised by the team’s failings. “A lot of people have actually talked. They are emotional Nigerians but anyone that is truthful and doesn’t deceive him or herself won’t expect more than he saw on Saturday,” Abiodun told Goal .
