Reacting to the draw, Ighalo who plays in the Chinese Super League, says the Super Eagles have all it takes to emerge from the group.

“Let me say that I am happy that we are not going to play Brazil and Germany in the first round of the World Cup,” Ighalo said after the draw.

“With this draw, we are have a good chance of qualifying from the group. It is a tough group and we have to work really hard and get our best for the World Cup.

“Iceland are also a good team. We can’t forget that they defeated England and did very well at the last European Championships. They and Croatia are no pushover.”

The three-time African champions will take on Croatia on June 18, 2018 in their first game at the competition.
