Adepoju: Super Eagles Must Take Advantage Of Croatia Victory Over Argentina

Share

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.

Iceland, who face Croatia next Tuesday, and Argentina, who play Nigeria at the same time, both have one point.

This followed the 2-0 loss to Croatia in their opening game of the 2018 World Cup.

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.

"My players are still growing and only Victor Moses and Mikel Obi are the experienced players in the team".

Midfielders: Pape Alioune Ndiaye (Stoke), Idrissa Gueye ( Everton ), Cheikhou Kouyate (West Ham), and Cheikh N'Doye (Birmingham). Subs: Fabianski, Jedrzejczyk, Bednarek, Goralski, Linetty, Teodorczyk, Glik, Peszko, Bereszynski, Kurzawa, Kownacki, Bialkowski.

British newspaper Daily Telegraph, in an appraisal of all the teams, rated Nigeria has only better than Saudi Arabia which lost the opening game of the competition 5-0 to host country Russian Federation and debutants Panama who lost 3-0 to Belgium. Now, representing a nation of just over 300,000 people, the World Cup darlings set their sights on the unthinkable - a spot in the Round of 16.

In a potential blow for Iceland, winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson - who is central to the team's quick, counter-attacking style - is a doubt after tearing a muscle in the Argentina game. "We know the importance of the game".

Iceland must now turn their sights on Croatia who ended the island's 2014 World Cup dream in a playoff, and the relationship between the sides on the field has often been tempestuous.

Stoke City new boy Oghenekaro Etebo has been given a more offensive role than what he played against Croatia and he is expected to play behind the twin strike force of Ahmed Musa and Iheanacho.
