Nigeria draw Argentina, Croatia and Iceland in Group D

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

Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli reassured fans his national team will be "very competitive" at the 2018 World Cup despite criticism from Diego Maradona following Friday's draw.

Nigeria's first game is against Croatia on June 16 in Kaliningrad before facing debutants Iceland in Volgograd on June 22.

Nigeria have never reached the quarter-finals and lost 3-2 to Argentina in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, when they were beaten by France in the last 16.

The Super Eagles have been drawn for a fifth time with Argentina at the World Cup.

A monitor displays group D after the 2018 FIFA World Cup football tournament final draw at the State Kremlin Palace in Moscow on December 1, 2017.

Musa also became the first Nigerian player to score a brace in a World Cup finals match.


A win in that game gives the Super Eagles one leg up on qualification, but a draw would not be the worst result, as long as they claim a win against Iceland in the second game.

The last was last month when they beat them 4-2 in Krasnodar, Russia. I can't wait for the World Cup, especially against Argentina.

But it was a "favourable draw" to caption the positve feelings of Nigeria after the Super Eagle escaped "group of death" unlike Morocco in Group B with Portugal, Spain and Iran or Group F which has Germany, Mexico, Sweden and South Korea.

In Group G, world No. 15 England will have heaved a sigh of relief after being drawn out of Pot 2, due to their inferior ranking, eluding the Pot 1 likes of holders Germany, Argentina and five-time champions Brazil.

The opening game of the World Cup will see hosts Russian Federation take on Saudi Arabia in Group A on Thursday, 14th of June. I think we can be happy, we can get out of the group, but it will be hard, " Dalic told HTV, according to net.hr. Belgium, Panama, Tunisia, England make up the teams that will slug it out. The quality of the opposition awaiting the Super Eagles next year should require that every single one of the 23 who eventually makes the plane would be there on form and fitness, ability and, to a lesser extent, contribution to the qualifying campaign.

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