World Cup Russia 2018: Group D – Preview, Odds, and Predictions

Group D. The group contains South America’s Argentina, Europe’s Iceland and Croatia, and Africa’s Nigeria. Even if Argentina is a strong favorite in the group. The South American team have one of the absolutely most star-filled teams in the tournament. With the football God Lionel Messi as captain, the team includes players like Agüero, Di Maria, Dybala, Higuaín, Otamendi etc. Even if the squad is insanely good offensively, there are still questions regarding the defensive power of the team. Moreover, the team had some serious troubles in the qualifying rounds and almost did not qualify. The Savior Messi single-handedly qualified the team with a hat-trick in the last fixture.

Later you have Iceland. The tiny nation qualifying for the European Championships in 2016 and surprisingly advancing to the knock out stages and there beating England. Two years later, the team is playing their first World Cup. The island nation close to the Arctic circle is the smallest nation to ever qualify for the tournament and what a team. Compared to a lot of other nations, the amounts of world-class players are limited but the cohesion in the team is lethal. Nobody should underestimate these Vikings as they have shown before. The tiny country won their qualifying group in front of their group rival Croatia as well as Turkey and Ukraine. The team has already won against Croatia in the group stage and could surprise the world to advance to the knock-out stages. It would not surprise me, nothing with that team would actually.

Croatia, a team with great talent but who hasn’t produced at the level they maybe should. The team consists of players as Rakitić, Kovačić, Modrić, Perišić, Mandžukić and the list goes on. The team has great chances of advancing to the knock out stages but you never know with this team. With great talent comes great responsibilities… Or what did Spiderman’s uncle say? It will be extremely interesting to watch this team during the tournament. We’ll see what will happen!

Last but not least, Africa’s Nigeria. The team has been going a bit under the radar due to the other African nations in the tournament. The Nigerian team is interesting as well with veteran captain John Obi Mikel, Arsenal youngster Iwobi, CSKA Moscow striker Musa, and rising star in Leicester City, Ndidi. The team will most likely not have a big chance to advance to the knock out stages but the team will absolutely give the remaining teams a fight for their money.
