Iceland must better in-form Croatia to secure qualification into the round of 16 on Tuesday. Going into the must-win game, Iceland boss Hallgrimsson is quite confident to do what looks improbable.
The World Cup debutants Iceland began emphatically, keeping Lionel Messi and Co. to a 1-1 draw to kick-start their World Cup Campaign. However, they could not come out on top against Nigeria on Friday.
Commenting on the Croatian challenge, Hallgrimsson said that their opponent may have had two exceptional performances in the World Cup but Iceland were ahead of Croatia in qualifying group and have already beaten them once in Iceland to draw confidence from.
Croatia have already advanced to the round of 16, with wins over Nigeria and Argentina. Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic hinted at resting players for the team’s final group match. He is most likely to protect his six players at the risk of suspension after having picked yellow cards, particularly Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic.
