Idowu wary of Croatia trio

Super Eagles left back Bryan Idowu has picked out Luca Modric, Mario Mandzukic and Ivan Perisic as the biggest dangers to Nigeria in their World Cup opener.

The Eagles begin their 2018 World Cup campaign against Croatia on Saturday and Idowu has stated that there are three great players in the Croatian team.

“The greatest danger from them are their three top players, Modric, Mandzukic and Perisic” reports the Amkar Perm man as saying.

“Perisic is strong on the counter-attack and uses space very well. Modric is a magician at the midfield while Mandzukic is a goal getter.

Idowu is expected to be used as a left back by Nigeria Coach Gernot Rohr, a position to which he is accustomed to.

But Idowu thanked the German tactician for the faith in him.

“Coach Rohr is someone I respect a lot. He is straight forward. I thank him for the chance given me.

“I hope to repay his faith by giving my best and helping the team perform in Russia.”
