World Cup football bets for Nigeria – Iceland
Nigeria-Iceland National Teams are facing each other in a second round match of Group D at World Cup 2018. The duel is on June 22, Friday, at the “Volgograd Arena” stadium.
Nigeria lost 0-2 from Croatia at the start of the world finals. The African side retreated to the opponent’s class, although it was an equal rival. The Croats used the static positions after which both of their hits fell. Nigeria has shown good things in the attack, but it has to be even better against Iceland to take advantage of this match. World debutants – Iceland, once again shocked their results at a big forum. The Vikings made 1:1 against the Argentine group favorite on Saturday. Now Iceland will try to win the three points to increase its chances of ranking direct eliminations.
Nigeria’s team retreated to the center of the field against Croatia in their first game. I think midfielder midfielder John Obi Mikkel did not get to the right level and he has to improve his game against the Icelanders. The Nigerian captain spends his best years in Chelsea, winning the Premier League, the Champions League, the English Cup and a number of successes. Between 2006 and 2017, John Obi Michel took part in 249 matches for Chelsea. Since 2006, the midfielder has played for Nigeria’s national team. At the Olympics in Rio he reached the bronze medals with his country. Thus, Nigeria is the only country to have gold, silver and bronze medals from the Olympic Games. John Obi Mikel is an extremely crucial player in the last ten years for the national team. He will have a major role in the upcoming match, and he has to show up on the level if he wants his country to record a positive result. Otherwise, Alex Iwobi and Odion Ighalo made good impressions in the chosen team from Gernot Rohr for the match with Croatia. Two Nigerian offensive players were often trying to fire towards the opponent’s door but their strikes were blocked by Croatian defense. In the upcoming game, Iwobi or Ighalo are likely to score a shot, and why not both be among the top scorers and make a debut at the world finals.
Iceland was very strong in defense against Argentina. Lionel Messi and the company had little chance of a goal, thanks to the good work of the Vikings’ defense. Although the Icelanders first allowed a shot, they were able to respond to a more classy opponent and restore equality through Alfred Finnbogason. Even before the break, Iceland still had good goals and could lead to the outcome. Of course, Lionel Messi’s pass from the penalty in the second part helped Heimir Hallgrimsson to take a point, but Iceland must be congratulated for his strong performance at the “Otkrytiye Arena” stadium.
Iceland star Gylfi Sigurjsson stayed a little shadowy at the first date. Despite the good result for the Icelanders, the team’s playmaker did not shine. It is true that he helped a lot in defense, but he could also get involved more actively in the attack on his team. Gylfi Sigurjsson began his football career in England – Redding’s team. He then goes through much stronger teams like Hoffenheim, Swansea, Tottenham and Pan Swansea. Last summer, Everton was drawn to the sum of nearly 50m euros. He is the most expensive Icelandic footballer and must justify this at the Mondiale 2018. Gylfi Sigurjsson is a very fast player, likes to shoot and often scores fouls. The Everton player will certainly play a key role in the Nigeria fight, and you can help him to play at any time in the game on any sports betting site.
