Maradona confident Argentina can qualify ahead of Nigeria

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

With much of the world cheering on, Iceland's magical spell shattered after they received a 5-2 thumping from tournament hosts France.

They beat Bulgaria in 1994, Spain in 1998, and Bosnia in 2014, drawing with England 2002, and will be aiming for at least four points heading into their final fixture against Argentina.

The Albiceleste have always determined Eagles fate, in 1994 Nigeria lost 2-1 to Argentina but still qualified top of the group, in 2002 and 2010 Nigeria lost 1-0 to Argentina to finish bottom of the group in bot years, and in 2014 despite losing 3-2 Nigeria qualified alongside Argentina.

Asked if he was expecting to be everyone's second-favourite team next year in Russia, Hallgrimsson said shyly: "We hope so".

"I think (our fans) will be stars in the World Cup, happy people". This group football pundit believes will favor Nigeria as the Super Eagles can easily knock out Iceland and contend with Brazil and England.

They won a qualifying group that had Croatia, Ukraine and Turkey.

"The minimum target is to have a good performance and have a good attitude", he said. Their fans will be there and it will be like they're playing at home.

Based on the latest Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings Guardian Uk predicts Brazil, Iceland, England and Nigeria to be in the same group.

Messi and the two-time champion lie in wait for Iceland on June 16 at Spartak Stadium in Moscow.

"Argentina have one of the strongest squads in football. the Nigerian players are great athletes, physically strong and it's hard to cope with them".

"Anyway, we should be able to make it to the round of 16".

Argentina did not have superstar Lionel Messi last month. "But I am confident that we can make it out of the group", he said.

Speaking on the strongest team in Group D Argentina, Dalic said: "I wanted to avoid Argentina, namely the two, three strong teams".
