Nigeria national team coach Gernot Rohr says they will not lose to Iceland on Friday in their second Group D match in Russia.

The Super Eagles did not have a bright start at the tournament after suffering a 2-0 loss to Croatia last Saturday.

However, the manager says they have a plan to avoid a loss on Friday and to also bag their first win in this year's tournament.

Rohr has expressed optimism that the family atmosphere in his team will see them avoid a defeat in their must-win Group D game against Iceland.

On the other thand, Iceland will be banking on their impressive performance against Argentina which ended 1-1.

“We’re living like a family, we have a plan and we won’t lose tomorrow (Friday),” said the in a press conference in Volgograd on Thursday.

“Iceland will have a home game here tomorrow with thousands of fans in the stadium. The situation in the match against Croatia was the same. If the heat is an advantage for us then we’ll take it!”
