Iceland drew a brutal match in its first World Cup

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

Russian Federation 2018 will be their fifth World Cup appearance.

European champions, Portugal, have their hands full in a tough-looking Group B that also features 2010 champions Spain, Iran and Morocco. Since then they have met again at the group stage at three other times in 2002, 2010, 2014.

"Croatia came to the World Cup; in the last two games against Greece, they won 4-1 and they played a draw in the second game".

"This is the youngest team in Nigeria's history in the World Cup".

Argentina did not book their spot in Russian Federation until their final qualifier, a 3-1 win at Ecuador on October 10, with captain Lionel Messi scoring a hat trick. "How much it is for Iceland against Argentina, I don't know, but we have shown through the years that if we play well, we can at least give them a good game".

Iceland drew a brutal match in its first World Cup

At RUSSIA 2018 the national team will face the Lionel Messi side for the sixth time as the last opponent for their group matches.

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.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria have kept only one clean sheet in seven encounters with Argentina. "Argentina have a manageable group but they have to improve". We hope we keep on making people happy.

He said: "Our first game will be against Croatia". Croatia who made their debut at the World Cup in 1998 finishing at third-place boasts A-list players in Europe such as the Real Madrid duo of Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic, Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic and Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic.

"It will be an interesting group and our last game against Argentina might decides a lot for us".

Iceland will be the smallest nation to ever play in a World Cup, and Iceland captain Aron Gunnarsson admitted they will have their work cut out for them.
