Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Iceland winger is very unlikely to recover from injury in time to play in the World Cup Group D game against Nigeria on Friday, his coach Heimir Hallgrimsson said.
“He is getting better every day. He is in good hands. I am not going to hide that it is very unlikely that he will play,’’ Hallgrimsson told reporters on Thursday.
The winger was substituted halfway through the second half of Iceland’s surprise 1-1 draw with twice world champions, Argentina on Saturday.
Hallgrimsson said the absence of the winger, would not affect the performance of his team.
“We are not afraid. It will not change the plans that we have decided before this game,’’ he said.
