All eyes will be on Iceland and their uphill battle, however, as their only chance of progressing to the next phase would be to beat Croatia and maintain a better goal difference than Argentina – who face Nigeria in the other Group D fixture.
Iceland started their World Cup campaign strongly by holding Argentina to a 1-1 stalemate, but lost 2-0 to the Super Eagles . Even if Iceland win their final fixture against Croatia, it may be out of their hands should Argentina better their goal difference with a win against Nigeria.
