#WorldCupDraw: Nigeria will beat Argentina again – Atiku
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar says the Nigerian team will beat Argentina at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Atiku made the statement in a series of tweets on Friday shortly after the World Cup draw.
The Super Eagles were drawn in Group D to play against Iceland, Croatia, and favorite rival Argentina in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup scheduled to be held in Russia.
Reacting to the draw, Atiku tweeted: “Today, FIFA will make the World Cup draws. I’ve already said my prayers for a good, entertaining group. #PrayForEagles
“We’re beating Argentina again. Let’s get ready for the World Cup. #worldcupdraws”
Nigeria first played against Argentina back in the 1994 World Cup. Since then they have met again at the group stage three other times - 2002, 2010, 2014.
