Look for Iceland to come up big playing for World Cup shocker

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Super Eagles on their 2-0 victory Friday over the national team of Iceland in their second match at the Russian Federation 2018 FIFA World Cup.

But this time he hopes it will knock out the South Americans.

A draw would be enough to eliminate the Argentines but would leave Nigeria's fate resting on the outcome of Iceland's game against Croatia which kicks off at the same time.

After the game, Musa was hailed for handing his team a win and Argentina a lifeline - and was feted for doing more for the Argentinian World Cup cause than the misfiring Messi.

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.

"What I like in my young team is humility, solidarity and fighting spirit".

Korea set to use back 4 vs. Sweden
Shin has yet to confirm whether he will use a back three or a back four against Sweden , whose main formation is 4-4-2. I was surprised of course [by Mexico's victory], but still for me Germany is one of the best teams in the world".

"We will play to win the game", Nigeria's German coach Gernot Rohr said.

And on the stroke of half-time Finnbogason came within a whisker of doubling his World Cup tally when he flashed wide Gylfi Sigurdsson's whipped in free-kick.

Left out of his country's opening Group D game at the tournament in Russia, Musa showed his worth with two outstanding strikes that put the Africans back in contention for a second round place.

Nigeria didn't let the fans down, defeating Iceland 2-0, and the qualification will now be decided in the last round of the group stage.

Excitingly Nigeria, Argentina and Iceland could still join undefeated Croatia in the next round, though the situation remains complicated.
