Russia 2018: Why Nigeria Might Just Beat Iceland
Super Eagles goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme got a jersey from the Iceland team ahead of their match with Nigeria, in a 'must-win' encounter in a group D fixture.
Ikeme, is battling Acute-Leukaemia, but received an honourary number as a member of the team to Russia.
Jón Daði Böðvarsson, who is a former teammate of Ikeme at Wolverhampton Wanderers led the Iceland squad who posed for a picture with a jersey.
The Iceland jersey has Ikeme's name on it and the number one.
Jón Daði posted a message accompanying the picture on his official Twitter account.
He said, "All of us in @footballiceland are with you @Carl_Ikeme"
The 31-year-old was the Super Eagles first choice goalkeeper until he was diagnosed with acute leukaemia, after playing just two matches during the qualification rounds.
The Super Eagles will meet Iceland in their next fixture on Friday, June 22, and this act of kindness will be completely a good sign that the Super Eagles could get the maximum three points from their Nordic foes (or friends).
