Nigeria Iceland Match Preview 

Iceland influenced an eminent World Cup to make a big appearance by holding any semblance of Argentina to a 1-1 draw on Saturday evening. Would they be able to expand on such outcome to get the notable lady triumph at the opposition on Friday when they go up against Nigeria at Volgograd Arena? 

Head mentor Heimir Hallgrimsson can be pleased with his group's superb protective execution against one of the occasion's top choices Argentina. His back line needed to deal with the ritzy assault of La Albiceleste's driven by Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero, however they've completed an incredible activity surrendering only once in a hour and a half. 

The completely recuperated Augsburg striker Alfred Finnbogason did his piece of the activity restoring Caballero's avoidance once more into the net only four minutes after his group was separated helping the Scandinavian debutants spare a point against the most grounded furnish in the gathering. 

Nigeria remain next up for them in what ought to be a significantly less demanding installation for the European hopefuls. 

The Super Eagles baffled intensely in their opening issue falling 2-0 to Croatia in a match which saw no shots on focus before the hour-stamp. 

Oghenakaro Etebo was unfortunate to put the Croats ahead scoring a claim goal 15 minutes before the break, while Luka Modric multiplied the lead for the Balkans side late on changing over the extra shot. 

It was a fairly poor execution for the Gernot Rohr's men who clearly needed innovativeness advancing. 

Victor Moses was the special case who really attempted to accomplish something in advance, however he could have not done much against the stern guarded line of Croatia's on the day. 

Nigeria Predicted Starting Eleven (4-2-3-1)

Uzoho – Shehu, Troost-Ekong, Balogun, Idowu – Ndidi, Onazi (Etebo) – Iwobi, Obinna, Moses – Ighalo.

Nigeria Iceland Head-to-head 

The two groups are going to bolt horns surprisingly on Friday. 

Nigeria versus Iceland Prediction 

The misfortune to Croatia made it three on the skip for Super Eagles following thrashings to Argentina and France four years prior in Brazil. 

The conflict with Iceland should give them a reasonable opportunity to see a conclusion to such run. Rohr will want to evade possess goals this time out as the group surrendered two consequent claim goals at the opposition in the event that we tally the one from the last 16 cycle four years back against France. 

We expect a nearby challenge with not very many goal scoring chances at the two closures here. 

The two chiefs favor a restrained guarded disapproved of approach and despite the fact that the draw won't be quite a bit of an assistance for either side, we consider it to be the most amiable of three results here. You can back it at the chances of 3.20. 

Under 2.5 goals FT should be an investor wager at 1.53, while you can likewise back low number of shots in the amusement general.
