Iceland winger Jóhann (Jói) Berg Guðmundson will probably not be playing tomorrow says coach Heimir Hallgrímsson due to injury. Hallgrímsson said this at a press meeting this morning in Volgograd, Russia.
"I'm not going to play hide and seek with the fact that it's very unlikely that he'll play. The 27 -year-old was injured during Saturdays's 1-1 Group D draw with Argentina.
Hallgrímsson was asked about the effect of the high temperature on the team's performance tomorrow. Currently it's 33 degrees C in Volgograd and it looks like it's going to be the same tomorrow.
"We played against Argentina in great, heat, a difficult match. I know it's going to be a little hotter tomorrow, and that's probably better for the Nigerians than the Icelanders. We will take this into consideration when considering our game plan."
