Former England international, Paul Robinson is worried for Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr following his side’s 2-0 loss to Croatia in their 2018 World Cup opener.

He said he can’t see Rohr’s side getting three points against Iceland and Argentina after their defeat to Croats.

Speaking as an analyst on beIN Sports, Robinson said: ”I think Nigeria are going to struggle in this group looking at that performance. An opening game you expect pace, tempo.

”Quality-wise, technically wise, they are not as good as Croatia, but you expect to make up with something else and they didn’t. If I was their manager, I would be worried for the coming games.

”They got Argentina and Iceland in the group, we are talking Argentina are going to top it, at best they are going to be coming second and they are going to need two results to do that which I can’t see them get after Saturday’s performance.”

The Eagles will face Iceland in their second game at the Volgograd Arena on Friday.
