...of the European qualifiers?

In their most recent meeting on July 11, Iceland won 1-0 with a last minute header from a set piece. The goal came from a 90th minute corner kick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhR8d7Ry36I

In the first leg on November 16 2016, Croatia won in Zabreb 2-0: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClYYqKRmRnc

Neither of these two teams scare me. As we know that Argentina are vulnerable at the back, this group is ours for the taking!

this is actually a very good thing

they also know each other well from the last WC playoff

I think it makes it more likely that Iceland and Croatia may end up drawing each other which would definitely help us.

Very good sense.

This group does not scare me at all. None of the teams have been playing particularly well.

None of the three have performed like say Brazil, Germany, Spain or France. Nigeria has no excuse not to top this group.

If we do it will go something like Nga-Irn 2014 or Nga-SA 2017.

I am glad it is not our opening match. After the Croatia game, we will want to secure qualification with a win against Iceland so that the final match is just a formality.

Croatia are a talented side and have some good players other than Modric. Mandzukic (Juventus), Rakitic (Barcelona), and Perisic (Inter Milan) come to mind. I think they have underachieved in recent years and will be anxious to get out of the group stage this time around.

Iceland may not have too many recognizable names, but they are a very disciplined and organized side. Kind of like Denmark's 98 world cup team.

Icelands biggest advantage when playing fellow European teams, "Strength", will count for nothing against us. They are very organized, but so are we these days.
They are not the most technical team, my only worry is our Former coach, Lager beer. Dude will Marshall men against Mikel, like butter is to bread.
We have to learn how to thrive without Mikel.

If we win or draw against Croatia we are through to the next round.

Except if France come second to Denmark in their group, which is very possible.

You need to go rewatch Iceland games again,very tactically team.
Messi will find it hard to break them,they are better than what you see in France last summer.
