"The managers, owners, fellow players and my dearest family and friends who immensely supported me throughout my career".

The smallest country by population ever to qualify for a World Cup, Iceland will then face African qualifiers Nigeria in Volgograd on 22 June 2018 before concluded their group campaign against a familiar foe in Croatia in Rostov-On-Don four days later.

Disu said that the first game at the World Cup would count a lot if the Eagles would progress from the group stage. After all, I'm human too.

Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrimsson is looking forward to facing two-time champions Argentina in their FIFA World Cup™ debut after being drawn in Group D with the South American giants at Friday's Final Draw in Moscow. "But I think we have a team".

"The attitude of some of the players made me to overhaul the team after we lost to both Argentina and Sweden and we drew with England in our final group game", he recalled. Though, I must confess it was not the best of time for me, but then this world is full of ups and downs.

"If we win the first game, it will help us against Iceland in the second game because we will not be under pressure".

"The first game (against Croatia) is the most important because you need to start well for your confidence", Rohr said.

Here's a look at how the draw worked.

Nigeria have never reached the quarter-finals and lost 3-2 to Argentina in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, when they were beaten by France in the last 16.

2010 World Cup winners Spain were placed in Group B which also has Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal, Morocco, and Iran.

"We are lucky we are not playing Argentina until the last game".

Nigeria's best outings were reaching the Round of 16 in 1994, 1998 and 2014.

Aiyegbeni made a bigger name for himself during the 2002/2003 Uefa Champions League season where he banged in a hat-trick in a 3-0 triumph over Olympiakos, and also scored from the spot in another 3-0 victory over heavyweights Manchester United.

"The thing with football now is that you cannot see a group now and say it is an easy group".

"I said this a few months ago and some people thought it was a joke", Onigbinde said in recent interview. Some of his less successful spells came with Qatari club Al-Rayyan and Turkish Super Lig side Kayserispor, but at this stage, his prolific career was coming to an end.
