Nigeria – Iceland : Preview & Prediction
If the two teams have not managed to win since several meetings, they still arrive in a totally different state of mind. For the first World Cup in its history, Iceland managed to create the sensation on the first day. Opposed to Argentina, Icelanders resisted the many assaults of Nigeria. In spite of the opening of the score of the Argentine players, the men of Heimir Hallgrímsson managed to react by equalizing a few minutes later. On the heels of Euro 2016, Gylfi Sigurðsson’s teammates proved that they could once again create a surprise in this international competition. In front, Nigeria arrives with much less certainty. Having not won since six games, the Super Eagles have had a lot of difficulties against Croatia. Leading a very young group, Gernot Rohr failed to find solutions against Croatian players. By facing Iceland with the obligation to make a good result, Nigerians may well have trouble taking the best on Icelandic defense.
The Icelanders have not won since five games. For its part, Nigeria remains on a series of six games without a win.
Heimir Hallgrímsson’s men were very solid on the first day against Argentina.
In case of a bad result, Nigeria could already be eliminated from the competition.
Islandia plays its first World Cup.
The two teams have never met before.
In view of the first World Cup games of the two teams, Iceland is still a step ahead. Showing an irreproachable state of mind, Icelanders are certain of their strengths. After defeating Argentina, Heimir Hallgrímsson’s men will have the means to put Nigeria in trouble. The Super Eagles could therefore stumble on a flawless Icelandic defensive block. Iceland’s win or draw could be a good alternative for this bet.
