Nigeria was like a better version of Saudi Arabia and Morocco. Moses from Nigeria tried really hard but lacked the finishing touch. it was not a bad game...these types of losses happen now and then where you have an OG(own Goal) off a deflection and that shirt grabbing leading to a PK...otherwise, Nigeria didn't do terrible.

Croatia, on the other hand, was pretty impressive. I like their passing game a lot. even that own goal from Nigeria was off a beautiful set piece from a corner. Croatia have very solid team chemistry(all players know their respective roles really well and executes it well), which is very important for a long tournament like world cup. I expect them to continue to improve with more games.

Nigerian Defense was impressive at times but Croatian Defense was better.
