Iceland's first FIFA World Cup appearance got off to a rousing start when the team held Argentina to a draw. The Nigerians though are coming from the back of a defeat.
With a population of around 350,000, Iceland is the smallest nation to ever qualify for a World Cup.
Iceland won't be changing their strategy much when they play Nigeria in their FIFA World Cup Group D`s second game on Friday.
Both the teams will face each other at Volgograd Arena, Volgograd, at 8.30 pm. Watch live streaming of Iceland vs Nigeria match on SonyTen sports channel.
Iceland's opening game of the tournament saw them hold Argentina to a 1-1 draw to give Heimar Hallgrimsson`s side a fighting chance of reaching the last 16. But to do that they realistically need to beat a Nigeria side which is disappointed in their first game when they lost 0-2 to Croatia.
Indeed, they had less than 30 percent possession when they beat England in France in 2016 and drew against Argentina in Moscow five days ago.
