  • Pls are the Argentine related to Nigeria or what the meaning of meeting in every world cup group stage1994, 2002,2010,2014,2018???

    Wow! Fair group. Second round, here we come

  • hahaa….now let the permutations begin I look forward to nigeria topping that group ;It will make things surprising and easier.

  • Damian iyke jr 10 months ago

    Hmmmm..ARGENTINA VS NIGERIA,, SEASON 5..THE DRAMA & SUSPENCE CONTINUES !!!!!

  • Ifeanyi 10 months ago

    Hmmm another group of death. We need to prepare well, there’s no two ways about it. We need to win our first and second match before anything else.

    • Adeyi Ode 10 months ago

      I agree. We do not want any last-match permutations. We should pick up our first 6 points from the 2 matches before the last match.

  • Peter Ono 10 months ago

    Please what is also the relationship with Brazil and costs rica,are they brothers

  • Our own don finish

  • Nigeria and Croatia are making it out of the group

  • Y’all should note this down. Messi will singlehandedly push Argentina into d finals from d group stages and Nigeria will go as far as the semis. For sure, we will qualify from d group. Iceland and the Croats will put on a good show but….

  • Is a fair draw here to us not bcos we beat Argentina in friendly, except we are not are ready for World Cup play before, infact all the group is not a tea party, one key area let’s strengthen our defense zone probably, no doubt Croatia + Argentina & Iceland are great footballing powerhouse, let say we draw with Croatia & struggle very hard to beat Iceland & draw Argentina we are confident to scale round 1 hurdle & then second round luck on our side we meet England we can beat them, I see my permutation working?

    • Your permutation won’t work..we will beat the three teams and qualify with 9 points..we are playing France’s group i think

    • Well said bro,, don’t mind dis people, said the true and be free

    • Iceland is a strong team

    • #Maximus Divine. that’s the spirit every nigeria shold exibit. iany one who don’t have d spirit should stop suporting the super eagles becouse that is the spirit the super eage is having at the moment. we don’t wana know nothing about no team and their strength. we are out to crush

    • why must we settle for second? We hv a better chance of reaching quarters and surpassing it if we top our group..we are playing d group france is and its most certain france will finish 1st..we will never play to come second..coming second will only be because we TRIED hard to finish first but couldnt. We dont need cowards like u to support super eales

  • We shall survive it by d grace of God

  • Watch out for Iceland. When Nigeria debuted in 1994, they put the footballing world in awe. When Croatia did in 1998, it took great luck to eliminate them at the semis. This time, Iceland, the giant killer us debuting. They will again surprise the world

  • I say, bring it on.

  • Oboy wakeup you still the sleep

  • Because we beat Argentina in friendly and you are expecting Nigeria to win Argentina again,, una never start,, #Croatia uwo ice-land,, let me just tell you people now Nigeria is my country and I am a fans of Nigeria, as far as Nigeria team is consign the can never beat any team in that group
