Gernot Rohr thinks Nigeria are ahead of schedule in team's development

Maybe Gernot Rohr gave the Super Eagles some tough talking during the break.

However, Argentina and World Cup debutants Iceland must win their respective games against Nigeria and Croatia next week to have any chance of advancing. The Arsenal man relishes representing his country and would certainly become a national hero overnight if he can influence the tie in favour of the Super Eagles.

FIFA World Cup 2018 Nigeria vs Iceland football match will kick off at 08:30 pm IST on Thursday.

Argentina and Iceland both have one point after drawing their opening game in Moscow.

Nigeria - will join Croatia in the knockout stages if they beat Argentina. Nigeria were terrible against Croatia, and Iceland may not have to perform to the best of their abilities to get a result. Nigeria will see this game as its best chance to pick up points, so we can expect the Super Eagles to enjoy advantages in possession, territory and chance creation.

Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrimsson remained upbeat despite seeing Everton midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson miss an 83rd-minute penalty for his side.

The victory leaves the Super Eagles in second spot, while Iceland and Argentina sit in third and fourth respectively.

The victory moves Nigeria up to second in the Group D table on three points behind Croatia (six points), with Iceland and Argentina on one point apiece.

Musa has scored at two different World Cup finals. They went into the tournament as arguably Africa's most successful side in its history and the only nation from the continent to reach the second round on three previous occasions. Musa began the Croatia loss among the substitutes, but he is now certain to start next week's crunch clash with Argentina.

"We've played Croatia four times in four years, we've often said we're like a married couple - we're trying to get divorced, but we always meet up again", the Iceland coach told a news conference.

On Friday morning, almost 200 fans of Iceland's World Cup soccer team - some natives of Reykjavik and other parts of the sparsely populated North Atlantic nation, others firmly seated on the Viking bandwagon - gathered in a cramped space in a midtown Manhattan pub.

"We will play to win the game", Nigeria's German coach Gernot Rohr said. Against England in their World Cup warm-up friendly, they looked lost for most of the game, and they never really got going against Croatia, either.

"That's a odd fact that we still are in the race, and that's fun", he said.
