Preview Nigeria vs Iceland


Nigeria will play their second match tomorrow against iceland.iceland drew their first match aqainst Argentina while nigeria lost to Croatia in their opening match respectively.Having pulled off one of the shocks of the

opening round of fixtures at the 2018 FIFA

World Cup Russia, Iceland will be hoping for

all three points against Nigeria at the

Volgograd Arena on Friday. In their opening

match of Group D, the fearless tournament

debutants managed to hold Argentina to a 1-1

draw thanks to a compact and hard-working

collective performance. When an unnerved

Lionel Messi missed a penalty that could have

won the game, the Icelanders visibly grew in

confidence and now Heimir Hallgrimsson’s side

are in with a decent chance of qualifying for

the Round of 16.

On the other hand, Nigeria go into this

fixture under significant psychological

pressure, as defeat would consign them to an

early exit from the tournament. Gernot

Rohr’s team were unconvincing in their first

match in Russia, when they looked predictable

in attack and less than assured defending set

pieces in a fully deserved 2-0 reverse to

Croatia.Nigeria must beat Iceland tomorrow to keep their worldcup hope alive.
