The players' frustrations are understandable, with the South American country facing their first group stage exit from a World Cup since 2002.

If Nigeria win, they qualify for the Round of 16 alongside Croatia, who are already through. If Nigeria wins and Croatia loses, Croatia could slip to second on goal differential. But with a plus-five differential right now, it's very unlikely.

They are hoping to emulate Paul the octopus who became an global celebrity when he correctly forecast the outcome of Germany's games at the 2010 World Cup and picked eventual winners Spain. Nigeria can advance with a draw as long as they stay ahead in goal differential if Iceland beats Croatia.

Former LSU star Ben Simmons named NBA Rookie of the Year
Ben Simmons is the Rookie of the Year! Mitchell even arrived to Monday's awards show in a van that underscored his point. Simmons averaged 15.8 points, 8.2 assists, 8.1 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 0.9 blocks per game.

"In a meeting like this one, the most we talked about was about football, and how to find a way to solve our game issues". A loss to Argentina would eliminate Nigeria, regardless of the other result. Against the tricky Icelandic team, he took his opportunity with both hands by scoring two goals to help the Super Eagles win and keep their slim hopes alive.

We expect Argentina to continue misfiring against Nigeria as it has done so far at World Cup 2018. If the teams wind up tied in differential, Iceland will need to have more goals scored in the tourney than Nigeria, and they're now one behind. They opened with a poor showing against Iceland as they played out a 1-1 draw, but things got even worse on Thursday.

Argentina and Lionel Messi progressed to the last 16 of the World Cup by the skin of their teeth on Tuesday after an 86th minute strike from defender Marcos Rojo gave them a 2-1 win over Nigeria, eliminating the African side. Croatia vs. Iceland and Argentina vs. Nigeria, which will take place on Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET.
