Former Super Eagles star Peter Osaze Odemwingie has reacted to Nigeria’s opening match against Croatia on Saturday.

Odenwingie, speaking with BBC Radio 5 Live, said the performance of the Super Eagles against Croatia was disappointing and poor.

The Nigerian team lost 2-0 to the Croatian side in their first game of the tournament.

“It’s a disappointing result and performance, and we only had one effort on goal which was a looping header.

“Mikel needs to play deeper in the role he is used to with Chelsea and Iwobi needs to play in the middle.”

Odemwingie added that Rohr should have changed the team selection after the first half of the match.

“I understand the team selection in the first half but we should have changed it when we went 1-0 down.

“I don’t expect us to win the World Cup with this young squad but we can improve,” he added.
