Betting Tip: @ Iceland to win @ 17/10 with bet365

Iceland were cast as the Group D outsiders although that doesn’t appear to be the case after Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Argentina.

Heimir Hallgrimsson’s team were value for their point even though they had Halldorsson to thank for keeping out Lionel Messi’s second-half penalty.

The 34-year-old might have less work to do against a Nigeria side who produced a lethargic performance on Saturday evening when losing 2-0 to Croatia.

While you can attribute the defeat to the Blazers being a decent team, the Super Eagles really didn’t carve out many meaningful chances, with Odion Ighalo starved of scoring opportunities.

Perhaps it should come as little surprise considering Alex Iwobi and Victor Moses are the players briefed with creating chances. The former has struggled to get game time for Arsenal and the latter tends to play as a right wing-back for Chelsea.

Iceland are clearly greater than the sum of their parts and took the 1-1 draw against Argentina in their stride. The target was a point and they landed it.

After going a goal down thanks to Sergio Aguero’s smart finish, they were swiftly on level terms and always looked dangerous on the counter-attack, with the team happy to be without possession and then bomb forward in attack.
