Match Preview

If there is going be a surprise qualifier from Group D to make it into the knockout stages one either Nigeria or Iceland must win this game. Iceland held Argentina to a 1-1 draw in their first game and Nigeria went down to the Croats without a whimper in their first game but a win here for either teams could set themselves up for a showdown game in their last games against Croatia for Iceland and Argentina for Nigeria.

Iceland showed a lot of character and grit that has won them much adulation and a similar display here could even further cement their growing reputation as a combative footballing nation. Nigeria were poor against Croatia, they showed little in way creative play or desire for that matter. They lacked any forward penetration and showed little in way of desire to get anything out of the game, they looked beaten even before they stepped onto the pitch.

The bookies just about favour Iceland over Nigeria and that’s probably just about right, if any team is going to win this game it’s probably Iceland but the chances of a draw is far more likely.
