One of Nigeria’s 2018 World Cup opponent, Croatia on Friday defeated Senegal in a friendly game played at the Gradski Vrt stadium in Osijek.

Forward, Andrej Kramaric scored the winner for the host in a comeback 2-1 win over the Lions of Terangaa.

Kramaric produced a superb all-round performance after coming on as a halftime substitute.

He injected life into a toothless Croatian side, which fell behind to an Ismaila Sarr goal in the 48th minute.

Winger Ivan Perisic equalised with a heavily-deflected free kick.

Thereafter, Kramaric showed a killer instinct in the penalty area, drilling in a rebound after a Senegalese defender blocked his first shot.

The Croatians open their Group D campaign against Nigeria on June 16 before taking on Argentina and Iceland.
