Carlos Menotti says the Super Eagles are no match for Argentina after both teams were drawn in Group D of the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia.

The ex-Argentina international said he would not be surprised if his country lost to other opponents apart from the Eagles.

’’The group is satisfactory, we are better than in the 78 World Cup that we had Italy, Hungary and France,’’ Menotti told Súper Miter Deportivo.

“It would not be surprising if Argentina lose to Croatia, but against Iceland, Nigeria, six points guaranteed.

“The friendly with Nigeria does not count too much, they are dangerous but they never reach their potential.’’

Nigeria will take on the La Abiceleste in their final group game on 26 June.

Both sides have met four times at the World Cup group phase.
