Burnley star Johann Berg Gudmundsson has described the Super Eagles as tough after both teams were drawn in Group D of the 2018 World Cup.
He also said that watching Iceland at the World Cup was ‘surreal’.
Argentina and Croatia are the other teams in the group.
“It was a bit weird before the draw that we were actually going to be in there, that was a bit surreal,” he told the Lancasire Telegraph.
“It’s still far away, we need to concentrate on club football, but it got a bit more realistic that we were going to be at the World Cup when the draw was made.”
On the Eagles, he said: “Nigeria from the fourth pot, that’s one of the toughest opponents there, but anything can happen in a big tournament like the World Cup.”
“We’ve done some good things over the last few years and we’ll go out there, enjoy it and try and do good things again.
Iceland became the smallest nation in history to qualify for the World Cup
