Former Nigerian coach Austin Eguavoen, has warned the Super Eagles not to only focus on Argentina after they were drawn against the South Americans for the 2018 World Cup.
Eguavoen who played at the 1994 and 1998 World Cup believes the team should instead worry about Croatia in group D of the soccer fiesta.
Speaking on SuperSports after the draw, the former Sunshine Stars coach said once the team beat the Croats in the first game, the rest matches will be easy to navigate.
“It is not only Argentina that are in the group, we have to first of all worry about Croatia,” Eguavoen said.
“Once we go past that hurdle, we can start talking about other teams. We are like underdogs, that’s the way people are looking at it but if the Germans, Spanish and Brazilians had crossed our path, they would also be worried.
“It won’t be easy against Argentina though, they’ll want revenge for that 4-2 friendly defeat and they have quality players like Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero among others. Iceland too can’t be written off.”
Group D is made up of Croatia, Argentina and Iceland. Nigeria play their first match on June 18, 2018 against Luka Modric-led side.
