bThe Super Eagles of Nigeria learn their fate today as the draw takes place in Moscow this afternoon.
The rules for the draw are pretty simple: four teams in each group, and nobody can draw another team from their continental confederation, unless you are a European side, where you can draw one other.
Nigeria are in Pot 4 and look certain to face strong oppositions from other groups.
However, teams will not fancy facing the Super Eagles who beat Argentina with ease during the last international break. The Nigeria national football team is arguably the strongest African country coming to the World Cup.
