“This may be the toughest group at the @FIFAWorldCup. Argentina, Iceland, and the Super Eagles. They are all very respectable opponents,”Suker was quoted on the Croatia’s Football Federation’s official website hns-cff.hr.
“No words to describe facing Lionel Messi, but we have to be proud of our achievement and believe in ourselves.”
