It was a blessing in disguise for the Super Eagles of Nigeria when Croatia beat Argentina 3-0 in one of the group D encounter yesterday. Until yesterday, it looked like the Super Eagles of Nigeria will need to beat both Iceland and Argentina if they are to qualify for the next round. But now, Nigeria could actually go through if they could manage at least four points with a good goal difference.
The Super Eagles challenge Iceland in the other leg of the group D match this evening and hopefully, they can win their first match and win well. Having conceded two goals against Croatia in the first match, it is expected of Super Eagles to match the scoreline or score more to boost their chances of qualification.
A win against Iceland would put Nigeria in the driving seat with 3 points, 3 behind Croatia, with Iceland and Argentina staying at the bottom with one point apiece. They will now work to seal qualification against Argentina with at least a draw and be hopeful that Iceland do not get a win against Croatia.
