Mourinho: Iceland will be physical against Nigeria

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has expressed his fears that the Super Eagles of Nigeria may find Iceland whom they face in their next group game a difficult nut to crack.

The Portuguese who is in Russia as a guest analyst for Russia Television (RT), while previewing the matches of Group D scheduled for June 22 said Iceland would be very physical against Nigeria.

“We all saw how they played against Argentina. They were good and physical. They are a team that play with a collective heart which Nigeria may not find easy,” said Mourinho who also jokingly said that the reason why Iceland are a physically strong side is because they ate meat as babies.

Iceland who are making their debut at the World Cup surprised many by pulling a 1-1 with Argentina last Saturday.

Iceland will face the Super Eagles of Nigeria in their next game on Friday at the Volgograd Stadium.
