Rohr speaks on players' fitness ahead of Nigeria, Croatia match

Abuja - Nigerian indigenous rappers, Olamide and Phyno, have released a World Cup theme tune to support the Super Eagles at the finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Super Eagles were camped at the Avita Resort in Bad Tatzmanndsdorf, Austria, in a week-long training programme for this year's World Cup.

Though 3-5-2 appeared to be the effective formation for the Eagles in the second halves of their defeats by England and Czech Republic, Rohr said at the weekend that he will not make any tactical approach cast in stone.

Mascherano who played against the Super Eagles in the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cup tournaments gave his opinion about all of Argentina's group stage opponents in an interview with the Guardian.

Speaking to www.scorenigeria.com.ng, a top board member of the Nigeria Football Federation said, "The appearance fees for all the pre-World Cup matches have been paid as the federation try to ensure that the players are in right frame of mind".

Africa's other representatives Senegal and Egypt are in joint-15th on 1.5 per cent chance with Nigeria, Tunisia takes 19th position on 0.9 per cent and Morocco are 20th (bottom) with 0.6 per cent.
