Fifa World Cup: Nigeria vs Iceland
With a place in the round of 16 up for grabs, Iceland battle Nigeria, and both teams are quite evenly matched.
Both teams will fancy their chances of grabbing all three points in this one, and will be highly motivated.
Iceland drew their opening game 1-1 with Argentina, while Nigeria lost 2-0 to Croatia, in what isn’t looking like a bad performance, after watching Argentina against them.
For Nigeria, Ighalo goes to the bench, while Musa and Ihenacho come into the starting line-up.
On the other side, we have one change for Iceland.
Reading striker Jon Bodvarsson comes in for Emil Hallfredsson as Heimir Hallgrimsson switches from a 4-5-1 formation to a 4-4-2.
