World Cup 2018: Nigeria's Mikel Obi Blasts Croatia Ahead Of Argentina Match

Nigeria's Super Eagles captain, Mikel Obi has reacted to news that Croatia will drop their big names against Iceland on Tuesday.

Mikel has urged Croatia to be professional and not drop any player against Iceland.

The match between Croatia and Iceland could determine the fate of both Nigeria and Argentina.

Two goals from Ahmed Musa secured Nigeria's first win at the tournament in Russia.

A defeat for Nigeria against Argentina would mean the Super Eagles are eliminated from the tournament and a draw could prove life saving.

Croatia have already booked a place in the last 16 after a 3-0 win over Argentina and Coach, Zlatko Dalic has vowed to drop some players against Iceland.

Now, Nigeria's Mikel Obi has reacted and said:

“I don’t think it’s the best thing to do,” he told Goal.

"This is a massive tournament –you can ’t rest people and give others a chance of qualification.

“They should be professional and play their best team. This is such a big stage that you can’t rest players just to help other teams to qualify.”

Despite having Lionel Messi in their squad, Argentina have failed to win any their matches so far, including an embarrassing 3-0 defeat by Croatia on Thursday.

However, Mikel is aware that a win against Argentina is definitely not an easy task.

“I think they have played well. It’s going to be a tough and difficult game for us,” he added.

Nigeria and Argentina will face off on Tuesday while Croatia will take on Iceland in Group D.
