An Iceland draw would be great for Argentina, assuming group leader Croatia doesn't lose.

Croatia vs. Iceland and Argentina vs. Nigeria, which will take place on Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET. It's safe to pen them in as group winners.

Iceland's players will be allowed to have sex ahead of their Soccer World Cup match against Nigeria, as long as it's with their wives, coach Heimir Hallgrimsson said on Thursday. Not because the two teams that played tonight are part of their group, but more so as the Nigerian win breathed life into Argentina struggling stay for survival under Russian condition after their back-to-back debacle in the tournament.

Playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson, who recovered from injury just in time for the World Cup, played 90 minutes against the South Americans, raising hopes he will remain fit for Nigeria.

Italy's Osteria Francescana scoops world's best restaurant prize
The Modena-born chef opened Osteria Francescana in 1995, and it has been in the top 5 of the global list since 2010. Claiming the second and third sports were El Celler de Can Roca and Mirazur, respectively.

Gerhot Rohr brought on wing back Tyronne Ebuehi for Bryan Idowu at the start of the second half and Nigeria came out full of running. Musa deftly controlled the ball before slamming it past Iceland goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson on the half-volley. To make matters worse, the lopsided loss to Croatia means Argentina would have to overcome at least a four-goal difference to win a tiebreaker with Iceland, assuming Croatia beats Iceland in the group finale. "However, we've moved past that disappointment and we're looking forward to the next game", Ndidi told FIFA's official website.

As Iceland, they showed their defensive qualities in the 1-1 draw with Argentina, successfully silencing Leo Messi.

I know they too have their plans as well, but we will try as much as possible to outrun them, especially in the midfield and attack.
