Ighalo, Iwobi OUT as Rohr rings the changes vs. Iceland

The Eagles thrived on the 4-2-3-1 formation to qualify for Russian Federation 2018 with a game to spare, but they also experimented with another, more attacking option of 3-5-2 in their recent friendlies.

With the win, Nigeria moves into second place in the group with three points from two games, ahead of Argentina and Iceland with one point each.

Akinwunmi reiterated NFF's desire to see the Super Eagles in the later stages of the World Cup, adding that the team would get their full entitlement if they qualified for the second round.

But Nigeria's second-half display in Volgograd was arguably as good as any in the World Cup and came after a fairly dour first half in which the Super Eagles did not register a shot on target.

"The match (vs Nigeria) will be tough, we are ready for this, and it will be a different game compared to Argentina".

Iceland's players were due to be reunited with their families on Thursday in Volgograd where they face Nigeria on Friday in Group D, with one eye on the knockout phase after an impressive 1-1 draw with Argentina on Saturday.

The result pushed the European giants to the top of the table with six points and five goals as they also beat Argentina in their second game while the Super Eagles are at the base with no point and minus two goals.

He assured the players of the support and the prayers of many Nigerians back at home.
