For Argentina to qualify, Nigeria must either draw their second game against Iceland, which is the best choice. If either Iceland or Nigeria wins, Argentina will be left with the option of a must win game against Nigeria, while they'll expect Croatia to beat Iceland or draw.

For Nigeria to qualify, they are expected to beat Iceland and also win the last game against Argentina or draw, if drawn, they'll be expecting Croatia to beat Iceland.
