  • World Cup Group D: Argentina, Iceland, Croatia, Nigeria

"They cannot play as badly as they are doing", said Maradona after the draw in Moscow. A recent 4 - 2 exhibition victory would inspire some confidence, even if that Argentine team was without its talisman, Lionel Messi. This game will be more hard than the friendly game we won, Messi will be available now.

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

Draw assistants were Laurent Blanc (1998 World Cup victor with France); Gordon Banks (goalkeeper of England's 1966 winning squad) and Cafu (two -time victor with Brazil).

Except for France 1998, Nigeria have faced the two-time world champions in all their world cup campaigns.

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

"However, whatever group we are in, we need to progress".

"Island will make us work, as everyone else".

Federation Internationale de Football Association conducted the World Cup draw in Friday, not only setting groups, matchups and schedules but also creating a number of intriguing storylines. They also have [Mario] Madzukic as a No. 9. "Group d will be a great challenge but croatia has to believe".

"After the draw can always be better or worse".

"I think Croatia is a bigger threat in that group. [Argentina] are the favourites of course but we won't roll over".

"They beat Greece in the playoffs to qualify for the World Cup. But our aim has to be to top the group", he said. "This will be an experience but really hard". It will be interesting to have a good friendly (match), for example, against Serbia because they play similar football.

Iceland and Croatia were paired together in qualification, claiming a win apiece, and Dalic added: "Iceland, we know them well. Once you lock down (Lionel) Messi, Argentina is useless", he said.

"I am happy that we are not going to play Brazil and Germany in the first round", he said. "But I am confident that we can make it out of the group", he said.
