Ex-international Yisa Sofoluwe has tipped the Super Eagles and Argentina to progress to the second round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Argentina, Eagles, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iran were weekend placed in Group F in the draw ceremony held in the Brazilian state of Bahia, with the top two finishers picking the two tickets into the round of 16.
Unlike Argentina, who they have played thrice at the World Cup, Eagles are yet to face Iran and Bosnia at the senior level and speaking to Sports Vanguard, Sofoluwe said that the Nigerian side have been gifted a gift of a lucky draw with foes like Iran and Bosnia.
“This is the best chance that the Eagles can ever think of having to qualify to the next round of the Brazil 2014 World Cup because I believe that they have what it takes to defeat Iran and Bosnia-Herzegovina, which should be enough to see them through to the round of 16.
“Argentina are the only side that can cause problems for us but by the time we are meeting them, we should have qualified and that would reduce the tension on the Eagles, who I feel can hold their own against the Argentines, if the conditions are in order”, added Sofoluwe.
