Nigeria vs Iceland: Diego Simeone expects Super Eagles to win after Argentina lose


Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone, has said that Nigeria will defeat Iceland in their second Group D fixture at the 2018 World Cup.

Simeone was speaking on Thursday night, after watching Argentina lose 3-0 to Croatia.

The former Argentina midfielder faulted how Lionel Messi and his team-mates started the match and expressed optimism they can still qualify for the next round.

“I see a lost Argentina team. Should’ve started like vs Iceland, a WEAKER team.

“I hope I’m not wrong but I hope Argentina advance because Nigeria will beat Iceland.

“It’s clear today in the dressing room they’re beating each other up. Someone has to fight. Stop breaking my balls!” he said.
