Nigeria will face Argentina in its final group match on Tuesday in St. Petersburg.

Our team's spirit is very important to us, no matter if we win or lose, we are always united and thinking the same way.

Musa's sweetly struck half-volley fired Nigeria into the lead just after half-time before he added a second with 15 minutes to go to make the Group D game safe.

Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrimsson remained upbeat despite seeing Everton midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson miss an 83rd-minute penalty for his side.

Skipper John Obi Mikel and Victor Moses had to be cajoled into new roles as Rohr heeded the criticism that followed his side's opening Group D defeat by Croatia.




"When I see the matches are so hard then we have to learn also it is not finished after this World Cup for us". For example, if Argentina wins 3-0 and Iceland wins 2-1, they would be level on points but Argentina's goal differential would be zero, while Iceland's would be minus-one. The Arsenal man relishes representing his country and would certainly become a national hero overnight if he can influence the tie in favour of the Super Eagles.

Lionel Messi and company have to beat Nigeria.

But if Argentina claims all three points, it can still advance depending on the result of the other match between Croatia and Iceland. Expect Heimir Hallgrímsson to gamble tactically if the game is a stalemate.

I know they too have their plans as well, but we will try as much as possible to outrun them, especially in the midfield and attack.

Nigeria are the youngest squad in Russian Federation and Rohr said the experience would see them return much stronger for the next World Cup in Qatar. Watch the Live & Exclusive stream of the game on MAX HD3 & beIN SPORTS CONNECT.
