Nigeria draw Argentina again

Nigeria draw Argentina again”

Nigeria on Friday in Moscow drew Argentina for the fifth time in six appearances of the Super Eagles at the FIFA World Cup finals.

Russian Federation will start the world cup with Saudi Arabi.

Also in the group are Croatia and Iceland.

The last time Argentina failed to make it past the group stages of the World Cup was in 2002, when they were also grouped with Nigeria.

World Cup Group D: Argentina, Iceland, Croatia, Nigeria

The Albiceleste have always determined Eagles fate, in 1994 Nigeria lost 2-1 to Argentina but still qualified top of the group, in 2002 and 2010 Nigeria lost 1-0 to Argentina to finish bottom of the group in bot years, and in 2014 despite losing 3-2 Nigeria qualified alongside Argentina.

Former Eagles coach Austin Eguavoen has warned Group D is not about Argentina and Nigeria as both Croatia and Iceland will also have a say in this group.

Only at the 1998 Finals in France did Nigeria not meet Argentina at a World Cup.

Familiar foes aside, they will face new opposition in Croatia and Iceland, with their opening game being a first meeting against the Croats.

"You know that Argentina is a very good team but know that it will be more hard now than in the friendly".

Champions Germany are in Group F with Mexico, Sweden and South Korea, in what seems to be a tough group.

A cross-section of football fans who spoke at the Abuja National Stadium said in spite of the Super Eagles being drawn against Argentina, the draw was fair enough. They are going to make us fight but it will depend on us.

Iceland will be the smallest nation to ever play in a World Cup, and Iceland captain Aron Gunnarsson admitted they will have their work cut out for them.

It starts with their opening game against Croatia.

The closest the Eagles have tackled the Croats was in a pre-World Cup warm-up against Yugoslavia in May 1998.

"This is because it could have been worse like the Morocco situation where the Africans have been pitted against the likes of Euro champions Portugal and Spain".

Nigeria will take on Croatia on June 16 in Kaliningrad, before facing Iceland on June 22 in Volgograd and Argentina on June 26 in St. Petersburg.
