Shehu Abdullahi: Eagles have the players to rule the world

At the World Cup 2018 in Russian Federation next summer, Croatia will face Argentina, Iceland, Nigeria and in Group D!

A cross-section of football fans in Abuja on Friday expressed satisfaction with the Russian Federation 2018 FIFA World Cup draw, adding that Nigeria got "a fair deal".

Seyi Dada-Martins, a multimedia consultant, also said: "It is a very dicey group we have been drawn into, but I'm confident in the abilities of the set of players we have to scale through the group stage".

African giants Egypt, who reached the world cup finals for the first time since 1990 and South American powerhouse, Uruguay are the other teams in group A.

Unfortunately, Nigeria has lost all her previous games against Argentina the other teams in Group D with Nigeria are Iceland and Croatia.

The draw comes 17 days after Rohr's men stunned Argentina by recovering from two goals down to win 4-2 in Krasnodar.

The competition, set for Russian Federation, has tossed up some spicy placements, with Portugal and Spain poised to face off in their first match, while England and Belgium will square up in their last. A recent 4 - 2 exhibition victory would inspire some confidence, even if that Argentine team was without its talisman, Lionel Messi.

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

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.

Nigerians were relieved by the draw, hoping that the Super Eagles would not draw into the group of death which consists of the hardest teams grouped into one.

"Anyway, we should be able to make it to the round of 16".

"For us, we have to take each opponent very serious right from our first game against Croatia".

The last game of the group will be against two-time World champions Argentina at the St Petersburg Stadium on June 26.

Group B sees 2010 winners Spain and current European champions Portugal drawn with Morocco and Iran, who are managed by Portuguese Carlos Queiroz. It had an impressive run to World Cup qualification, beating notable teams like Croatia, Ukraine, and Turkey.
