Nigeria will be looking to get a win in their second Group D game against Iceland, but Super Eagles will know that they will have a tough test against debutants Iceland who showed plenty of fighting spirit in their 1-1 draw with Argentina.
Nigeria looked poor defensively in their 2-0 defeat to Croatia. Gernot Rohr will be hoping that his youthful squad has learnt from their opener, and taken those lessons into the game against Iceland a side who are similarly defensively robust.
Alex Iwobi will be hoping to start again on the wing, and his trickery will be a needed if Nigeria is to break down the Iceland defence. The Arsenal man relishes representing his country and would certainly become a national hero overnight if he can influence the tie in favour of the Super Eagles.
Nigeria Predicted Team
As Iceland, they showed their defensive qualities in the 1-1 draw with Argentina, successfully silencing Leo Messi. The tiny European nation did ride their luck, however, with Messi missing a second-half penalty. However, after such a disciplined performance they will fancy getting a positive result against their West African opponents.
The game against Nigeria should bring out a more attacking side from Iceland. Expect Heimir Hallgrímsson to gamble tactically if the game is a stalemate. The more attacking outlook could see space open up for Everton playmaker Gylfi Sigurðsson. The six-time Iceland player of the year played a key role in the draw with Argentina and will be a threat from set-pieces from his side.
Iceland Predicted Team
Halldorsson; Saevarsson, Arnason, R Sigurdsson, Magnusson, Gudmundsson, Gunnarsson, Hallfredsson, Bjarnason, G Sigurdsson, Finnbogason
