Speaking to reporters ahead of Ghana’s friendly with Iceland, Atletico Madrid defensive midfielder Thomas Partey has advised the Icelandic National Team on how to beat Nigeria at the 2018 World Cup.

The Black Stars, who are not competing at this summer’s football festival after finishing third in Group E of the African qualifiers, are presently in Laugardalsvöllur (Reykjavík) for tonight’s clash.

Partey is well acquainted with Nigeria and recently travelled to Uyo with his Spanish side for a friendly with Super Eagles Team B.

“All teams from Africa have high speed and power. However, they tend to be unorganised. The weaknesses of the African team consist mainly of permanent play,” Partey said.

“They often go wrong with the corner kick and free kick. The Icelandic team is very strong in solid play and the team can use it in Russia this summer.”

Nigeria will face off with Iceland at Volgograd Arena on June 22 in both countries second Group D match in Russia. (Agency report)
