While many Nigerians are so optimistic about the chances of the Super Eagles doing well at the Russia 2018 World Cup, former Chelsea and Barcelona forward, Eidur Gudjohnsen feels otherwise.

Gudjohnsen believes the Super Eagles lack the quality to qualify for the knockout stage at the forthcoming Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup.

On a SuperSport programme monitored in Lagos, Gudjohnsen whose country, Iceland is pitched in Group D alongside Nigeria, Argentina and Croatia said: “Nigeria is a big question mark for us. We don’t know much about them but we shall be playing Ghana to have an idea of African style of football.

“Aside that, I still see them as a threat, but I have a strong feeling Argentina and Croatia will qualify from the group..

“No doubt, Argentina is the biggest team in the group. We want to see our player do great things in Russia. I’m not ruling my country out. We showed class during the last Euro tournament. We defeated a great team like England during the knockout stage.

“If at all we want to make the knockout stage, we must beat Argentina before we play Nigeria and Croatia.

“I see us frustrating our opponents because we still remain one of the minor and new comer to the competition.

“Nigeria, Croatia and Argentina are regular, but sincerely speaking, I don’t see Nigeria and Iceland making it to the next round,” Gudjohnsen opined.
