Prediction: Nigeria 1-0 Iceland
Nigeria vs Iceland match expecting a good fighting match. Nigeria the team who could not scored more than one in the qualifying round. So it is predicted they scored one against Iceland. Some strong attacker have presented in their front line and their defense also strong. On the other side the celand played not so bad. Their playing style, performance and game changing power superb. So anything is possible in the game. As the match getting closer the Nigerian fans becomes more conscious. They know this being the way to go in the next round. However, all the best for both side.
