Football fans happy with Nigeria's group

As the World awaits the draw for 2018 FIFA World Cup which is due later today, Nigerians hopes to escape the group of death which is usually the case since our first outing in 1994.

Given the number of times both nations have met, it could be argued that Nigeria should now understand better how to prepare for and prosecute a World Cup game against La Albiceleste.

Should they finish in the top two, they will meet either the winners or runners-up of Group C, which include 1998 champions France, Denmark and Peru, in the last 16.

Group D - Nigeria, Argentina, Croatia, and Iceland.

Hosts Russia and Group A opponents Saudi Arabia will kick off this World Cup on June 14, and the final will be played on July 15, with both games held at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria have kept only one clean sheet in seven encounters with Argentina.

"The battle between Nigeria and Argentina has always been a thriller and the Eagles' 4-2 win against the Argentines recently in a friendly match has made it even sweeter ahead of their Russian Federation 2018 group stage encounter".

Ahead of the clash between Argentina and Nigeria in Russian Federation come 2018, here are the necessary facts you need to know about ... 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. Morocco will have their work cut out against Cristiano Ronaldo and company, as well as 2010 World Champions Spain. We need to establish a way and be the Argentina we want to be.

Iceland won its qualifying group in October ahead of Croatia which was runner-up.

He said: "Our first game will be against Croatia". "I think we can navigate our way into the knockout stages but it's going to be tough".

Nigeria have shown much promise since making their World Cup debut at the 1994 competition in the United States.

Despite having to face Messi, Nigeria striker Odion Ighalo was pleased to avoid the other giants of world football.

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.
