After a saddening loss to Croatia in Nigeria’s first game at the 2018 Fifa World Cup, Nigeria will get a chance to redeem itself today at the game against Iceland which will kick off by 4 pm.
While momentum is building up, Captain of the team, Mikel Obi, says he is willing to take any position as long as success is guaranteed. According to him:
Here’s what tweeps have to say:
I have a feeling Nigeria vs Iceland is going to be one of the best games of all the matches played so far tomorrow, really excited to watch them at 11.

Hey Super Eagles. Ignore Rohr and listen to me@alexiwobi you are no10. Act like it.@mikel_john_obi you are the DM. @Ndidi25 you are the engine. Die on the line.@VictorMoses you are not wall of Jericho. Stay on your feet.
Finally, make sure y’all Shaku Shaku when you score.

So even with a win for Nigeria vs Iceland on Friday, we'd still have to do permutations and wait for the outcomes of the final group matches. 🤣

Mikel ahead of Nigeria vs. Iceland: “I am ready to play in any position the coach wants me to play. I am comfortable with either role: offensive or defensive. The most important thing is the team.”
