Former Super Eagles defender, Pastor Taribo West has reacted to the team’s 2-0 loss to Croatia in the opening Group D match on Saturday.
The Super Eagles of N|igeria were downed 2-0 by Luka Modric led Croats putting their qualification from the group stage in danger.
The former center-half told Goal that players such as Victor Moses, Kelechi Iheanacho and John Obi Mikel hold the success of the senior national team in the tournament.
He said the players must raise their game if the Super Eagles are to make any impact in Russia 2018.
“Players like Victor, Iheanacho, Obi Mikel have demonstrated their qualities.
“And the advantage of this selection is to have a very experienced coach in Gernot Rohr. He knows the highest level. We rely a lot on him, on his experience.
“It’s a team that does not have a lot of experienced players. We do not have big, big players. But I think Rohr has worked hard. Collectively, I find them very strong.
“It’s a young, fresh team. We have talent and are mentally strong. But I repeat, these players, apart from a few of them, need to acclimatise to the highest level. ‘European experience’ is missing in this squad.”
