Lars Lagerback sends goodwill message to Eagles ahead of World Cup

William Troost Ekong and Leon Balogun

Super Eagles group D World Cup opponents Argentina are ranked 7th overall, Croatia 8th, while Iceland are behind the Super Eagles, ranked 23rd.

The Gunners star, who scored the all-important goal that took the Eagles to Russian Federation against Zambia, told FIFA.com that he nearly cried afterward, positing that it was a dream come true for him.

"The fact I've been training with world-class players every day has given me a bit of experience, so I'll know what to expect in Russian Federation".

"Win your first game first, and prepare for the next one without thinking of the third game".

"If the Super Eagles can win the first game, the confidence and quality will build and Nigerians will see the quality in them as the competition progresses".

Nigeria and Argentina will play their fifth World Cup encounter in St. Petersburg. Yobo then played in 1-0 losses in 2002 and 2010 and a Messi-inspired 3-2 defeat in 2014.

"It's hard to describe, as the feeling was insane", he says.

The CIES used the 2018 qualification stage matches and the clubs in which the country' s players represent as the basis for the rankings of the 32 World Cup bound teams.

"The reduced tariffs would afford their customers to enjoy and be a part of history, and I believe the current squad of the Super Eagles would excel in Russia", Mr Yobo said. "I really don't think the defence is as bad as is being portrayed".

This new development comes on the heels of Coca-Cola's ongoing "Score a Trip to Russia" Promotion in which lucky participants will get a chance to travel to Russia to watch the FIFA World Cup games live on an all-expense paid trip courtesy of Coca-Cola.
