Iceland Coach Keeper We’re Not Better Than Nigeria We’ll Play To Our Strengths

Nigeria's top players needed persuasion to change positions in a tactical shake-up but coach Gernot Rohr's plans paid dividends as they beat Iceland 2-0 on Friday to get back in contention to progress to the World Cup's last 16.

Gylfi Sigurdsson squandered a late lifeline for Iceland, botching a penalty in the 80th minute which would have set up a grandstand finish.

Captain Aron Gunnarsson launched a long throw into the box and, after Bodvarsson had made a nuisance of himself, a push gave Iceland a free-kick just outside the area.

The pace inevitably dropped with the temperature still a stifling 31 Celsius at the 6:00 pm (1500 GMT) local time kickoff. The next chance fell to Leon Balogun but the new Brighton defender headed over the bar despite being unmarked. That is why l have said that in four years time the experience to play at the World Cup will be there. "We played against a very good team from Iceland who were better in the first half but did not score and we were better in the second half", Rohr added.

Wilfred Ndidi almost made it two shortly after, but his well-struck, deflected shot was tipped over by Thor Halldorsson for a corner.

Iceland (vs. Croatia) and Argentina (vs. Nigeria) will both be looking for a win in their final group stage match while hoping the other doesn't win.

And though a defeat to the Albiceleste would confirm their elimination, a draw would mean they require Croatia to do them a favour against Iceland.
