Two more groups will be settled as the World Cup continues on Tuesday.

Here, Press Association Sport details what to look out for in the final matches of Groups C and D.

Can Argentina rescue their tournament?

Nigeria will be no pushovers

In theory, Nigeria’s victory over Iceland on Friday made the equation a little simpler for Argentina as it prevented them falling three points behind second spot in Group D. In practice, however, it may have done anything but as the Super Eagles came alive. Ahmed Musa scored two outstanding goals and the pace of their attack suggests Argentina will have their work cut out.

Iceland hope to keep dream alive

After claiming a draw against Argentina, Iceland may have sensed another unlikely chance to reach the knockout stages of a major tournament after their heroics at Euro 2016. Their loss to Nigeria has dealt that hope a hefty blow and now they will need to beat form side Croatia in Rostov-on-Don to keep the dream alive. It seems unlikely but, as Roy Hodgson will attest, they can still spring a surprise.
