  • World Cup Iceland’s players will be allowed to have sex ahead of their match against Nigeria

"On the Iceland game".

Moses, usually allowed to roam up front for Nigeria, was put to work as a right wing back against Iceland and after a tepid first half helped his side to win three points by setting up the opening goal for Ahmed Musa.

Argentina: They are now placed fourth in the group and have to defeat Nigeria by more than two goals to topple Iceland by goal difference if the European nation manages to upset Croatia.

Iceland gutted out a draw against heavily favored Argentina in Round 1 of Group D play.

A draw would be enough to eliminate the Argentines but would leave Nigeria's fate hinging on the outcome of Iceland's game against Croatia.

Musa's sweetly struck half-volley fired Nigeria into the lead just after half-time before he added a second with 15 minutes to go to make the Group D game safe.

Alfred Finnbogason, who scored the equaliser against Argentina as a lone striker, was joined up front by Jon Bodvarsson and the pair quickly made an impact. The next chance fell to Leon Balogun but the new Brighton defender headed over the bar despite being unmarked. Musa deftly controlled the ball before slamming it past Iceland goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson on the half-volley.

Wilfred Ndidi almost made it two shortly after, but his well-struck, deflected shot was tipped over by Thor Halldorsson for a corner. And with Croatia routing the Argentines 3-0 on Thursday, it opened the way for Iceland to claim the group's second spot in the round of 16.

Lionel Messi and company have to beat Nigeria.

I know they too have their plans as well, but we will try as much as possible to outrun them, especially in the midfield and attack.
