However, Argentina have come out tops the four times they have clashed with the West Africans at the World Cup - 2-1 (1994), 1-0 (2002), 1-0 (2010), 3-2 (2014).
"Perhaps, our final group game against Argentina will be the final for our qualification to the next round".
Also in the group are Croatia and Iceland. On the other side, we scored four goals and he's not going to play in defence so if we can score more goals against their defence than he will lead his team to score against us, then we will be fine.
The closest the Eagles have tackled the Croats was in a pre-World Cup warm-up against Yugoslavia in May 1998.
On this week's episode of the "NESN Soccer Show", Courtney Cox, Marc DiBenedetto and Marcus Kwesi O'Mard join the debate and determine Group D - Argentina, Croatia, Iceland and Nigeria - deserves the "Group of Death" moniker.
The Super Eagles of Nigeria will know their foes on Friday's Russia 2018 draw billed for the State Kremlin Palace, Parliament of the Russian Federation.
"Nigeria has a young team, very fast".
As The New York Times' Rory Smith argued, if Argentina can improve its defense, a semifinals appearance in the World Cup could be a slightly pessimistic possibility. "As for our other opponents, I think Nigeria should be able to beat them comfortably and qualify for the knockout stage", Sanda said. They did well at the last Euros championship. Their fans will be there and it will be like they're playing at home.
Before the draw, Coach Gernor Rohr in an interview os Super Sport tactically spilled the fear that he would not mind any country in the group stage but however mentioned that Germany, Spain and England could be a nightmare if the super Eagles are peered in the same group with the top football nation countries. "Iceland are very strong physically, have the best fans in Europe". "With this draw, we have a good chance of qualifying from the group".
"We will have a hard group because we are in the last pot and we are supposed to have big teams with us".
