Veron, who helped Argentina beat the Super Eagles 1-0 in their group match at the Korea/Japan 2002 World Cup, labelled Nigerian an “unpredictable” team.
Nigeria defeated Argentina 4-2 in a friendly game in Krasnodar, Russia, last month but Veron said the result would not affect the South American nation when both teams play at the World Cup.
“Nigeria is unpredictable. They always come to us in the group. African players are actually unstable and depend on what they have a day before and how they feel ahead of the game,” OwngoalNigeria.com quoted the former Manchester United midfielder as telling Dnevno.
“Croatia is not bad, it has players in strong clubs in Europe. They should not be underestimated. We are stronger than them, but we should be careful.”
