Eagles Draw Argentina, Croatia, Iceland in Russian 2018 World Cup

In Group D, Argentina will face Nigeria for the third World Cup tournament in a row, as well as Croatia and tournament debutants Iceland.
.

In the draw held for the 32 competing nations in Moscow today, Nigeria and Argentina were drawn together in Group D.

A draw there would see the Super Eagles advance, providing Nigeria haven't slipped up before then.

Nura Sanda, a medical doctor, said Nigeria was lucky to be in the group.

The confidence of the all-action defender was certainly buoyed by the Eagles impressive 4-2 win over the South Americans in a friendly last month also in Russian Federation.

Although they showed great character in coming from behind to beat the Argentines 4-2 in a recent friendly match, it will require a tremendous performance to repeat the feat at the World Cup. "Now they will be looking to revenge the humiliation they suffered from Alex Iwobi's hands". We hope we keep on making people happy.

"Even though the like of Croatia are not pushovers, boasting of players such as Perisic, Mandzukic, Modric and Rakitic". Hard group but we will take our chances. The groups will contain one team from each pot.

In South Africa 2010, the Super Eagles were drawn in Group B alongside Argentina, Greece and South Korea in the same group. We need to establish a way and be the Argentina we want to be. But, it is an exciting one.

"I hope that Icelandic fans will come to Russian Federation and stay at least for the three first games, and then I don't know how long they will stay, but hopefully they will see us through to the end of the tournament". "But our aim has to be to top the group", he said. "Once you lock down (Lionel) Messi, Argentina is useless", he said.

The Super Eagles will play its first game of the prestigious competition against Croatia on June 16, in Kaliningrad.

"Wow - what a draw!"

We have a young team and we are going to the World Cup to go and learn.

"Perhaps, our final group game against Argentina will be the final for our qualification to the next round".

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is scheduled to kick off on June 14 and last till July 15.
