Nigeria vs Iceland preview

last nights 3-0 humiliation of Argentina by Croatia, puts the first match result of these two teams into perspective. Croatia looked good, perhaps Nigeria weren't as bad as we thought. Argentina looked poor perhaps Iceland's result wasn't as good as it looked. However, having said that if Iceland win tonight they are through and it is not beyond their capabilities. Don't expect them to push forward in crazy desperation to score though, they are a very self-aware team and know their own strengths and weaknesses. They will play to their strengths and protect their weaknesses which means dour, rugged defending and hard work. Nigeria were erratic to say the least in their first match against Croatia, mixing moments of decent football with moments of shockingly poor football.
This will not be a game for the purists.

Final score prediction   1-1

Best odds:   Nigeria   17/10    Draw   19/10   Iceland   9/5

Best bet  both teams to score and under 3.5 goals   21/10
