Victor Agali, Off On A Mission to Spy Croatia and Iceland

Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr says he is counting on his scouts led by his former player Victor Agali to give him the lowdown about the Croatian national team ahead of the World Cup.

Rohr want to know Croatian match tactics and key individual players that make up the team. Agali is very experienced in team scouting and I know he will furnish us with technical make up as well as the psychology of the team.

We will also be relying on Agali and his team of scouts to give us technical details of Iceland. Argentina is already a well known foe.

Meanwhile, Nigeria’s first World Cup opponents have been snooping around for information about the three-time African champs, with head coach Zlatko Dalić sending his trusted scout Ognjen Vukojević to watch the Super Eagles pre-World Cup friendlies against Poland and Serbia in March.

Dalić has also admitted that he is monitoring the performances of key Super Eagles players such as Victor Moses, Kelechi Iheanacho and Alex Iwobi for their respective clubs ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

Croatia will open their FIFA World Cup campaign on June 16 against Nigeria and obviously they want to get a win, they will also face Iceland, the team that beat them to automatic qualification, and two-time world champions Argentina in Group D.
