#World Cup: Ighalo blames Manager, Rohr for Nigeria’s 2-0 loss to Croatia

Nigerian striker, Odion Ighalo has faulted Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr’s 3-2-3-1 formation that places him as a lone striker.

The Chinese-based forward struggled to find his shape as Croatia beat Nigeria 2-0 in the opening Group D match on Saturday.

The loss put Nigerians in bad mood and threatens the team’s chances of progressing through the group that also had Argentina played out a 1-1 draw with debutants Iceland.

The 28-year-old said he did his best in the game while blaming the German coach’s approach, saying, “I did my best be we didn’t create enough chances.

“We must work on our weaknesses ahead of the next match.

“It’s difficult to play as a lone striker but the coach decides how we play. We have to decide the pattern we play (in subsequent matches).”
