Iceland drew a brutal match in its first World Cup

The World Cup draw Groups A-D

They are also pitched against Croatia and Iceland in Group D and play their first game on June 16 against Croatia.

Meanwhile that African giants, Nigeria have been drawn in the same group as Argentina for the fifth time in their six World Cup tournaments means that Gernor Rohr side has a familiar foe in the group stage.

"It is a feasible challenge because of the type of teams".

They fought hard before falling to Argentina 2-1 in their debut finals, winning plaudits for bringing sub-Saharan African flare to the game.

"Argentina can not play any worse than they are doing", he told TYC Sports.

In the four tournaments since Nigeria's first appearance at the global soccer fiesta in 1994, Nigeria has qualified from the Group stages on two occasions - '94 and 2014 - but did not make it out of the group from an Argentina group in 2002 and 2010. We are realistic, we wait for the draw and afterwards, we will organise our planning and our friendly games. "World Cup baby", Balogun wrote.

He added that it was another opportunity for the Super Eagles to prove to the world that their recent 4-2 win against the South American giants was not a fluke.

While Argentina have never met World Cup debutants Iceland on the global stage, they only have to look at England's shock last-16 2-1 defeat at Euro 2016 to know that the Nordic nation will not be pushovers. "We can not surprise them like we did the last time, and now they will play with (Lionel) Messi", he added. However, the opposition in Russian Federation will be considerably tougher as both Croatia and Iceland performed reasonably well in their qualifying games.

"It could have been better but it could also have been worse", he said. "But our aim has to be to top the group", he said.

"Anyway, we should be able to make it to the round of 16". "With this draw, we have a good chance of qualifying from the group".

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