EXCLUSIVE COVERAGE Nigeria vs Iceland: Live commentary, stream, kick off time and confirmed team news for World Cup 2018 match

Nigeria and Iceland clash in Group D both hoping to claim their first victory of this summer’s tournament.

Minnows Iceland are making their World Cup finals debut and produced an excellent display in their opening match, holding Lionel Messi’s Argentina to a 1-1 draw.

Nigeria endured a disappointing start to their World Cup, going down 2-0 to Croatia

, and another defeat would mean an early exit for the African nation.

With Argentina losing 3-0 to Croatia

on Thursday night, a win for Iceland would put them on the verge of a place in the last 16.

When is Nigeria vs Iceland?

The match will take place on Friday, June 22 and will kick off at 4pm UK time.

The match will be at the Volgograd Arena, which has a capacity of just over 45,000 and hosted England’s game against Tunis

Who are the key players?

Chelsea’s Victor Moses was excellent in his club’s 2016/17 Premier League triumph, with a new-found role at wing-back injecting life back into his football career. His performance levels took a sizeable dip last season, along with the rest of his team-mates, but he remains a key man for Nigeria.

Gylfi Sigurdsson did not set the world alight against Argentina with Iceland largely on the defensive. However, Iceland should attack much more against Nigeria, which will offer the Everton playmaker the best opportunity to show off his skills.

What is the team news?

Nigeria XI: Uzoho; Omeruo, Ekong, Balogun; Moses, Etebo, Mikel, Ndidi, Idowu; Musa, Iheanacho

Iceland XI: Halldorsson; Saevarsson, Arnason, R. Sigurdsson, Magnusson; Gislason, Gunnarsson, G. Sigurdsson, Bjarnason; Bodvarsson, Finnbogason
