No doubt the Super Eagles of Nigeria will be pleased with their group following the World Cup draw earlier of Friday, as they were grouped with Bosnia-Herzegovina, Iran and South American giant Argentina in Group F.

“Argentina again?” he screamed. “There is no easy group. I think they are the ones to be worried about us this fourth time,” said Keshi

“Not knowing Bosnia is a difficult thing but they are a good side. I think I’ve seen them once or twice on television.

“Iran? I’ve never seen them. For them to be here means they are a good team,” he added.

Having comfortably defeated Nigeria three times in World Cup finals (1994, 2002 and 2010),the South Americans are already expected to have a place in the Round of 16 and even already in the quarterfinals since they would supposedly face Group E’ runners up.

Nigeria assistant coach Daniel Amokachi said: “It’s a good draw for us. Argentina are the world powers here, but you cannot afford to underrate Iran or Bosnia. We will respect all the teams and take it game after game.

“If we could win our first game and have three points in the bag, we will be comfortable going into our second game against Bosnia.”

Should Nigeria finish as runner up of Group F, they would play the winner of Group E, which has Switzerland, Ecuador, France or Honduras in the Round of 16. Should they win that match, they would play the winner of Group H (Belgium, Algeria, Russia or South Korea) or the runner up of Group G (Germany, Portugal, Ghana or United States).
