Argentina legend, Diego Maradona is confident that Argentina will make it through to the last sixteen of the 2018 World Cup after the two-time world champions were pitted against Nigeria, Iceland and Croatia in Group D, AOIFootball.com reports.

The Super Eagles will lock horns for the fifth time in six appearances at the World Cup with the La Albiceleste at the Saint Petersburg Stadium, Saint Petersburg on June 26, 2018 in both countries final group game.

”It is a feasible challenge because of the type of teams. Argentina have to step up their game. They can not play as badly as they are doing,” said Maradona after the draw in Moscow.

Nigeria qualified for the second round of the World Cup in 1994, 1998, and 2014, and were knocked out in the group stage in 2002 and 2010.
