World Cup 2018 Nigeria vs Iceland Live Football Score Nigeria Thwart Iceland Attacking Threat

He also praised the development of the Super Eagles under German coach Gernot Rohr. Nigeria play Argentina and Iceland face already qualified Croatia in the final round of matches next Tuesday. The Super Eagles enjoyed 65% of meaningless possession in the opening half without mustering a shot on goal.

His good form will come as a sigh of relief for Nigerian fans and coaches alike, especially after a awful performance in the opener against Croatia.

Heimir Hallgrimsson has made two changes to his Iceland squad, bringing in Rurik Gislason for the injured Johann Berg Gudmundsson and forward Jon Dadi Bodvarsson to replace midfielder Emil Hallfredsson as the team moves to a 4-4-2 formation from the 4-5-1 used during the 1-1 opening draw against Argentina.

The Super Eagles looked devoid of ideas throughout the match and they were unable to create virtually anything to trouble the Croatian defence.

See the best social media reactions to Nigeria's victory below.

FIFA World Cup 2018 Iceland v/s Nigeria football match will take place on Friday, June 22.

Iceland missed a late penalty - awarded after a video assistant referee review - when Gylfi Sigurdsson fired over.

Musa showed superb technique to fire Nigeria ahead on the half-volley before the Leicester player rounded keeper Hannes Thor Halldorsson to make it 2-0.

Iceland has every right to be on a high following the draw against Argentina.

US Open will consider Serena Williams pregnancy in seedings
Williams, who was ranked No. 1 in the world when she ceased playing after winning the 2017 Australian Open, is now ranked 183. There hasn't been an indication where Williams, 36, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, may be seeded at the US Open.

Sigurdsson is a danger for Iceland, and Wilfred Ndidi must be at his best to silence the Everton man, who will drop off his striker in the hole and in between the lines to find good space.

Anything other than a Croatia win over Iceland could prove fatal for Argentina, who can only carry a maximum of four points at the end of group play.

Nigeria have failed to score in six of their last 11 world Cup matches.

Coach Gernot Rohr's Super Eagles - who brought the youngest squad to Russian Federation, with an average age of around 25 years of age - have now won just one of their past 13 games at World Cups.

The Super Eagles are still fighting to reach the knockout round. There is still everything to play for in Group D. We have rotated the team a lot during qualification and we are not afraid, we will not change our plans of what we have made a decision to do before today's game.

Iceland boss Heimir Hallgrimsson: "It's a odd fact that we are still in the race".

Iceland, the smallest nation ever to compete in the World Cup, was not as effective as it had been against Argentina when it earned a surprise 1-1 draw.

"We", Hallgrimsson said, "expect to win".
