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

The Super Eagles of Nigeria started the campaign against Iceland slowly, becoming the first team in the 2018 World Cup not to have a shot in the first 45 minutes of action.

Ahmed Musa scored both goals as Nigeria swept aside World Cup debutants Iceland to leave Group D intriguingly poised with one round of games to go.

Croatia top Group D with six points following their win over Argentina on Friday evening, while Nigeria sit in second with their win over Iceland. If Nigeria wins, it will advance to the round of 16.

Goals from Ante Rebic, Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic sent Croatia into the knockout stage for the first time since their debut at France 1998.

He hit the bar shortly before making it 2-0 in the 75th minute when he used his pace to beat Iceland defender Kari Arnason and rounded goalkeeper Hannes Por Halldorsson before slamming the ball into the net.




He doubled the lead in the 75th.

Referee Matt Conger used the Video Assisted Referee system to confirm that striker Alfred Finnbogason had been fouled by Tyronne Ebuehi in the 80th minute.

Iceland's players will be allowed to have sex ahead of their World Cup match against Nigeria, as long as it's with their wives, coach Heimir Hallgrimsson said on Thursday.

Skipper Mikel Obi has also been withdrawn to defensive midfield from the No 10 position that has caused him so much flak this week, while Victor Moses will play at right wing back, the role he plays at his Premier League club Chelsea.

"They should be professional and play their best team".
