The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have disclosed they are “very
close” to tying up a World Cup warm-up against Croatia.

Nigeria will face Mexico on March 5 in Atlanta as part of their
preparations for the World Cup and officials have now said they are about to
seal another friendly against Croatia.

“We are 95% close to sealing a friendly against Croatia ahead of
the World Cup,” NFF spokesman Ademola Olajire said.

The country’s official match organisers also said they are
working on the final details of the Croatia match.

Nigeria want to play Croatia because it will afford them a
chance to play against a team with a similar style with Group F rivals

The African champions are also drawn in the first round of Brazil 2014 with Argentina and Iran.
Nigeria are yet to confirm if they are part of a tournament of World Cup finalists in the United States of America.
