All the ways Argentina can advance to the World Cup's knockout stage

An Iceland win would have spelled near-doom for two-time World Cup winners Argentina and Lionel Messi, but Musa's heroics have blown things wide open for the group finale on Tuesday.

Iceland's players will be allowed to have sex ahead of their Soccer World Cup match against Nigeria, as long as it's with their wives, coach Heimir Hallgrimsson said on Thursday.

Nigeria defeated Iceland 2-0 in both countries second group match played in Volgograd, Russia.

Rohr who spoke at the post-match conference also praised his team and coaching staff for working hard to achieve the victory. This result would give Iceland two points and Nigeria one point heading into the final day. It was a different style in defence.

The play: Look for a set piece to make the difference.

"The players, as well as all the staff, worked so hard in the past six days or so for us to be ready for Iceland and be able to achieve this".

"It's a unusual fact that we are still in the race", Hallgrimsson said. He moved to English Premier League team Leicester City two years ago after a prolific spell in the Russian capital, but failed to settle and spent much of last season on loan back at CSKA.

"We had 47 percent possession of the ball, we had 14 shots on the goal, they only had 12".

"It is not easy having to do so, especially when you have to combine defensive duties with offensive duties".

"They should be professional and play their best team".

A second-half brace from Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa earned the Super Eagles their first points of the competition and earned the 23-man squad a whopping $345,000.

Gerhot Rohr brought on wing back Tyronne Ebuehi for Bryan Idowu at the start of the second half and Nigeria came out full of running.

"We know the importance of that meeting,"he said".
