Russian Federation 2018: Nigeria in the same group D with Argentina

Nigeria Super Eagles celebrating in their Match with Argentina

Interestingly, Russia 2018 will be the first time Nigeria will square up against Croatia and Iceland.

"They did it in 2014 and lost against France but last time they were in Pot 3 and now we are Pot 4, so it will be more hard".

World Champions Germany will slug it out with Mexico, Sweden and South Korea, while five-time champions Brazil have to contend with Switzerland Costa Roca and Serbia. Argentina have to step up their game. So when we faced them at the World Cup, they'll be stronger with him playing.

Sampaoli said: "These are rivals that are coming with few obligations and a lot of enthusiasm for a unique opportunity as the World Cup is".

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

"I think Croatia is a bigger threat in that group". Here are some of the best reactions regarding said draw.

Their spirited display lifted by their vocal travelling fans gave a new meaning to worldwide football. At the tournament in Brazil, the Super Eagles qualified as the second best from the Group which included Bosnia, and Iran after nicking a one-goal win over the former and playing out a goalless draw with the latter.

Victor Ikpeba was quick to point out that Nigeria have beaten the Argentines when it has not really mattered and it would be best they get their points in their opening two group games against Croatia and Iceland before the final game against Argentina so that they could go past the first round in Russian Federation.

"Argentina have one of the strongest squads in football. the Nigerian players are great athletes, physically strong and it's hard to cope with them". "I hope we keep on making people happy". "Once you lock down (Lionel) Messi, Argentina is useless", he said. "With this draw, we have a good chance of qualifying from the group".

The German manager, however, asked the Nigerian team not to expect a re-occurrence of what happened on November 14, stressing that not just the Argentine but other opponents in the group were ranked better by Federation Internationale de Football Association.
