Adamu Imam, a member of Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), Bauchi State chapter, also described the Nigeria/Iceland encounter as “a good one, especially the second half of the match.”
He attributed the improved performance of the Super Eagles to “replacement of some players that played against Croatia and substitution during the second half.
“You know Icelanders play aggressive and up ball, therefore, I think the coaching crew noticed that and during the second half might have advised our players to embark on ground ball.
“We, therefore, witnessed a change in the pattern of play in the second half, which was result-oriented.” (NAN)
