Nigeria must not lose concentration - Rohr seeks flawless outing against Iceland

Iceland are buoyant after what their coach Heimir Hallgrimsson described as a "schoolbook example" of how to defend against Lionel Messi's Argentina. It's going to be down to some margins, a set piece, a goal in injury time.

Find out on Matchday 9 at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

"We have to be fully focused and not lose concentration all through the game. I still believe in Gernot Rohr and I believe he must have seen his mistakes and he will turn things around".

Gudmundsson tore his calf muscle in Iceland's 1-1 draw against Argentina.

Leicester's Ahmed Musa could start for Nigeria after coming off the bench in their opening game.

June 19-24, 2018 - The FIFA World Cup takes place in Russian Federation, with 32 teams competing to be crowned World Champions.

Iceland will be looking for their first win of the tournament as well following a massive 1-1 draw with Argentina.

Let's look at the Nigeria vs. Iceland betting lines.

These two sides have never met in worldwide competition.

After recording eight shots against Argentina in the first half of their first match, Iceland failed to register a single attempt on goal in the second 45 minutes.

Nigeria have lost each of their last three World Cup games. If they win this then Argentina could be in a bit of bother depending on results.

Iceland is dreaming of the knockout stage and writing a new chapter in one of the most outstanding stories of global football in recent years. That draw was huge for the Vikings' confidence, as it's gone to show that they can hang with the world's best and that they aren't just some cinderella from a couple of years ago.

This means that Iheanacho will take the spot of Odion Ighalo in the starting line-up. However, I'm going to ride with Iceland to get the win here.
