Minnow Miracle

Argentina's 3-0 defeat on Thursday night gives both these sides realistic hopes of progression against the odds.

Before the tournament began we suggested that Argentina could crash out in a tough Group D and one point from two games later, the South Americans are in real trouble.

Iceland started their campaign with a spirited 1-1 draw against Messi and co and they should now be clear favourites to follow Croatia into the last 16.

The bookies will never really rate the Nordic nation though and they are only the most marginal of favourites against a Nigeria side who flattered to deceive at the weekend.

Iceland started like a train on Saturday, despite falling behind, and with their tails up I’m backing them to lead at half-time and full-time against the Africans at best odds of 19/5 with Ladbrokes.
