NGA VS ICE DREAM11 MATCH PREDICTION, PLAYING XI, PREVIEW, FANTASY TEAM NEWS

By Kartikey Sharma

The NGA vs ICE match preview –

In yet another clash in the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia we see a European nation taking on their African counterparts. Iceland will face Nigeria in a match played in Group D.

Iceland once again raved in the plaudits from the footballing world after an inspired performance from the entire team. They managed to curb the problem that Argentina possesses and defended for their lives to earn a deserved 1-1 draw.

The team showed excellent character and their goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson saved the penultimate penalty of Lionel Messi to help his team’s cause. The Vikings will be buoyant with performance and would want to couple it with their first win this tournament.

Nigeria, on the other hand, had an awful showing against Croatia. They were outclassed in every department and the young team looked inexperienced. Coach Rohr is expected to tweak things around and maybe free up John Obi Mikel from the duties of being a creative midfielder.

A lot relies on the Premier League attacking pairing of Alex Iwobi and Victor Moses for the Super Eagles to have a successful outing.

Nigeria and Iceland have met only once and that encounter took place in 1981. Surprisingly, Iceland dominated that game and the scoreline was 3-0.

NGA vs ICE Team News:

Nigeria:

  • Nigeria captain John Obi Mikel was lacklustre in the last game. It is speculated that he isn’t comfortable playing as an attacking midfielder and would rather be more suited for the defensive midfield position.
  • Alex Iwobi and Victor Moses have to be more clinical in the attacking front.
  • Francis Uzoho will be the goalkeeper for Nigeria.

Iceland:

  • Iceland’s captain Aron Gunnarsson was inspirational in his defensive midfield performance last time out.
  • Goal-scorer Alfred Finnbogason will be given the nod to start again.
  • Hannes Halldorsson was the keeper who saved Lionel Messi’s penalty.

NGA vs ICE Probable Playing 11:

Iceland (4-4-1-1) –

Halldorsson, Saevarsson, Arnason, R.Sigurdsson, Magnusson, Gislason, Gunnarsson, Hallfredsson, Bjarnson, G. Sigurdsson, Finnbogason

Nigeria (4-3-3)–

Uzoha, Shehu, Troost-Ekong, Balogun, Idowu, Onzai, Ndidi, Mikel, Moses, Ighalo/Iheanacho, Iwobi

Players to look out for-

  • Gylfi Sigurdsson

Even the defence took precedence in the media for their amazing performance, it was Sigurdsson who was responsible in creating chances for his side. He will do the same against Nigeria.

  • Victor Moses

Victor Moses has to take the role of the most experienced winger of the side. Even though he spends his time playing right-wing back at Chelsea, he has been an attacker from the start of his career and needs to be more assertive in the final third.
