- Sebastian Veron is optimistic that Argentina will qualify from Group D in the 2018 FIFA World Cup
- Argentina will meet Nigeria, Iceland, and Croatia in Group D at the championship next year in Russia
- Veron, 42, explained that only the Super Eagles stand a bigger threat for his national team in Russia
Argentina football legend Sebastian Veron believes that his country's national team will not have any problem to qualify from Group D at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The South American side have been drawn in Group D for the next year's tournament where they will meet the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Iceland and Croatia.
But the 42-year-old who plays and serves as the chairman for Estudiantes de La Plata stated that the Super Eagles of Nigeria are unpredictable ahead of their final Group D clash on June 26, 2018.
"The group in which Argentina are is not easy, but it is good that it did not get any big national team," Veron was quoted as saying by Dnevno.
"Argentina should go through the finals without a problem, and it is good that the quarter-finals do not cross with big teams. That means we have a few games to clear the shape and become even stronger.
"Nigeria is unpredictable, they always come to us in the group. African players are actually unstable and depend on what they have a day before and how they feel ahead of the game,” Veron explained.
Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how the Super Eagles of Nigeria came back from two goals down to beat Argentina in a tough friendly match played in Russia.
