Russia 2018: Super Eagles Could Face France Or Denmark If...
The Super Eagles need to fully concentrate on the last Group D game against Argentina on Tuesday night.
And if they successfully cross the huddle with a win or avoid a defeat, they will be up against either France or Denmark, who are familiar foes.
Denmark hit the Eagles 4-1 at the Stade de France in Paris in 1998, with the Nigerians failing to fully focus on the match but on a probable quarter–final match-up with Brazil, a situation they must avoid on Tuesday.
The performance in 1998 came two years after the Nigeria U23 team edged Brazil in the Olympics semifinal in USA.
Four years ago, France were 2-0 winners at the Estadio Nacional Mane Garrincha in Brasilia, kicking the Eagles out of Brazil 2014.
France and Denmark have dominated Group C here in Russia, each with six points and similar two-goal credit, and with their clash in Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium also on Tuesday to determine the group winner.
Peru and Australia have already been eliminated in that section.
The winner of Group C will take on the runner-up of Group D (Nigeria’s section) in the Round of 16 in Kazan on Saturday 30th June, while the winner of Group D will play the runner-up of Group C in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday July 1.
