Former Eagles coach Austin Eguavoen has warned Group D is not about Argentina and Nigeria as both Croatia and Iceland will also have a say in this group.

"I believe that African players have the talent, they have the physical and technical possibilities, but what they are missing is organisation, what they are missing is discipline", said Rohr, who has also coached Gabon, Niger and Burkina Faso.

Incidentally, both teams experienced harrowing openers against top teams as they failed to make the knockout stage four years ago in Brazil.

With much of the world cheering on, Iceland's magical spell shattered after they received a 5-2 thumping from tournament hosts France. The country went into that game in danger of missing out not only on direct qualification but a spot in the playoffs.

The Eagles have already clashed with Argentina 4 times at the World Cup in 1994, 2002, 2010 and 2014.

1998 champions France will be clear favourite in this group with Didier Deschamps' men boasting some of the finest stars in world football at the moment.

They will then face World Cup debutants Panama on June 24th. "I hope we keep on making people happy".

In Previous outings, For instance, In USA 1994, Nigeria was placed in Group D of the tournament, alongside Argentina, Bulgaria and Greece.

"It could have been better but it could also have been worse", he said.

"I think Croatia is a bigger threat in that group". "This will be an experience but really hard. We can not surprise them like we did the last time, and now they will play with (Lionel) Messi", he added.

Iceland qualified for its first World Cup this year. "We seem to be a married couple", he said.

But facing Lionel Messi and Argentina, ranked fourth in the world by Federation Internationale de Football Association, will be another challenge. "We aim to progress from the group".

Coach Gernot Rohr has warned the Super Eagles to underrate any team and prepare harder for the 2018 World Cup tournament in Russian Federation.
