World Cup! Our Super Eagles To Face Iceland On Friday, @ 4pm

The Super Eagles of Nigeria disappointed the nation in their opening match, loosing 2-0 to Croatia in a match which saw no shots on target before the hour-mark.

It was a rather poor performance for the Gernot Rohr’s men who obviously lacked creativity moving forward.

Iceland made a glorious World Cup debut by holding the likes of Argentina to a 1-1 draw on Saturday afternoon.

Team News

Odion Ighalo is still favoured to lead the line over Kelechi Iheanacho for Super Eagles

The former Lazio man Ogenyi Onazi could take Etebo’s place as the defensive midfielder.

Arnason and Ragnar Sigurdsson make the rock-solid pair at the centre-back and breaking them down will be a massive challenge for the non-inspiring Nigerian attack.

Super Eagles likely starting XI

Uzoho – Shehu, Troost-Ekong, Balogun, Idowu – Ndidi, Onazi (Etebo) – Iwobi, Obinna, Moses – Ighalo.

Iceland likely starting XI

Halldorsson – Saevarsson, Arnason, Sigurdsson, Magnusson – Gudmundsson, Gunnarsson, Hallfredsson, Bjarnason – Sigurdsson – Finnbogason.
