Brazil, Nigeria gets another chance to push qualifications.

Published

Today’s Group D match between Nigeria and Iceland took on extra significance after Argentina were emphatically beaten 3-0 by Croatia on Thursday.

While the result confirmed qualification to the next round for Croatia, it opened up the group, where all three remaining teams can still join Croatia in the round of 16.



Argentina and Iceland both have one point from their opening game draw, while Nigeria will be playing to get their first point, having lost the opening game to Croatia.

In Group E, all eyes will be on star studded Brazil who were held to a 1-1 draw by an impressive Switzerland side.

Brazil, whose formidable attack featuring stars like the world’s most expensive player Neymar Jr, Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino, Barcelona’s Phillipe Coutinho and Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus was frustrated by Switzerland’s resolute defence.

Tite’s men will face the same challenge when they meet a Costa Rica team who pride themselves on a solid backline.

Coach Tite said his side suffered from anxiety during the game, the first time Brazil have not won a World Cup opener since 1978, urging them to keep their heads when they got into shooting positions.

Costa Rica’s coach Oscar Ramirez said on Thursday, he might task two of his players to man mark Neymar, adding that his team would not try to foul him out.

“Neymar is a very skilled player and it’s true that people have tried to stop him a little aggressively,” Ramirez told reporters on the eve of the match. “We have our own strategy and we will see what happens.

“Maybe we will cover him by two men. But of course we don’t want to see any sort of offences against him or any unfair attacks against him. The players know what to do.”

Nigeria’s Super Eagles will be playing to avoid a premature elimination from the tournament after they lost their opening game 0-2 to Croatia. A second consecutive defeat would see them join fellow African sides Egypt and Morocco who will be going back home after the group stages.

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr is confident his side will not lose against an impressive Iceland team that held Lionel Messi’s Argentina in the first game.
