Iceland to use Ghana friendly to prepare against Nigeria


World cup debutants Iceland have lined up a friendly match against the Black Stars of Ghana, to serve as a test-run for their second match at the FIFA world cup against Nigeria.

The match will be played at Laugardalsvellir stadium, Reykjavik, on June 7th, and will serve as the last warm-up game for the Scandinavians before they play their first world cup match against Argentina on June 16.

The Icelanders hope to use the game against Ghana to have a clear understanding of the pattern of Nigeria, since the Super Eagles and the Black Stars play a similar pattern.

Iceland have also scheduled friendlies against Mexico and Peru in the United States of America on March 23rd and March 27th respectively.

Iceland and Nigeria are in Russia 2018 World Cup Group D with Argentina and Croatia.
