Group E, FIFA World Cup 2018 match | Match Day -8

FIFA World Cup 2018

NGA vs ICE Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

A lot more was expected from the Nigerian side who defeated the mighty Argentina in a friendly match by 4-2 goals in November and also became the first African team to qualify in the World Cup. The Nigerians are known for their pacey attack and fluidity on the ground but in their first game against Croatia, they failed to present either one of that. A poor midfield presentation from them not only stole their possession of the ball but also several chances. They were up against one of the best midfielders’ pair in this world cup, Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic. They need to deliver more in this game if they are to keep on their World Cup dream because they would be facing debutants Iceland in their next game and by all means, that opponent would be a tough opponent to beat.

Iceland kicked off their World Cup journey with a draw against Argentina in their first match and that was surprising given they were facing an opponent 10 times bigger but till the end they managed to hold on their line and a missed penalty from Lionel Messi gave them a deserving one point in the group and the Argentine also had to settle for one when they were favourites to take all the 3 points against Iceland. The Icelanders would keep on impressing the world as they have been since Euro 2016 as they knocked England out of it.

This FIFA World Cup 2018, Group D, 3rd match is to be played at Volgograd Arena at 1600 hours in Local time. A thrilling game awaits everyone on Match Day 9 for everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

Iceland: Iceland will field the same team that they played against Argentina because they were more than impressive on the ground and breaking that combination won’t make any changes to that. However injured player Johann Berg Gudmundsson is to be rested because of his calf problem and he will be replaced by Rurik Gislason.

Nigeria: Nigeria is also expected to present the same team in this game as well which they played in their last game. Leon Balogun will keep his place on the team after giving a great performance in their last game.

Important updates:

04:46,

After successfully snuffing out Lionel Messi and Argentina in the last game, Iceland will be riding high on confidence and must be aiming to go a step far in this game.

For Nigeria, this could be the last chance saloon for them to save their stuttering campaign. They lost their last game 2-0 against Croatia and a loss in this game would end their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages.
For Iceland, Johann Berg Gudmundsson is very unlikely to recover from injury in time. So we advise you don’t select him in your Dream11 Fantasy squad.
Also, Everton playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson, who recovered from injury in time for the World Cup and played against Argentina, is 100 percent fit.

NGA vs ICE Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:

 

 

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

Nigeria failed to capitalize on Iceland’s 1-1 draw with Argentina on Saturday and fell to a 2-0 loss to Croatia. They need a positive result here to improve their chances of securing a last-16 spot here. Iceland defended admirably against Argentina and was rewarded for their efforts with a point in the draw with the South American side. With the group favourites out of the way, they’ll be looking to secure a first ever World Cup wins. Indeed, Iceland could secure a narrow victory this one.
