La Roja need just one point from their final group match to guarantee progress to the semi-finals, while the Super Eagles must equal or better Uruguay's result against Tahiti.
Nigeria require a bit of miracle to qualify for the semi-finals, seeing as they most likely will have to beat Spain and beat them well to keep their goal difference ahead of Uruguay. The Spanish will go out to win the group in style and book a mouth-watering semi-final date against either Italy or Brazil.


Can Nigeria beat Spain to qualify for the semi-finals?

NIGERIA

Enyeama
Ambrose • Omeruo • Oboabona • Echiejile
Ogu • Mikel • Ogude
Musa • Ideye • Babatunde

SPAIN

Casillas
Arbeloa • Piqué • Ramos • Alba
Xavi • Busquets • Iniesta
Pedro • Soldado • Fàbregas

DID YOU KNOW?
  
  • Nigeria have only won two of their last six international fixtures (W2, D3, L1). However, the 2-1 defeat to Uruguay on Thursday ended a 19-match unbeaten run.
 
  • The Super Eagles' only previous competitive encounter with Spain ended in a 3-2 victory in the group stage of the 1998 World Cup.
   
  • John Obi Mikel (pictured, left) made his 50th appearance for Nigeria in the defeat against Uruguay, crowning the landmark with a goal.

        
  • Spain are on a five-game winning run and are unbeaten in their last 24 matches.
   
  • La Roja last faced African opponents in the previous edition of the Confederations Cup in 2009. They beat host nation South Africa 3-2 in the third-place play-off.
   
  • Only a defeat by four goals or more against Nigeria would put Spain at risk of elimination from the tournament.

Nigeria can beat Spain if they are serious and play less “Walk-in-Football” 
You cannot afford to pass the ball in six or eight when not necessary.
I hope they’ll start another goalkeeper….who is not absent minded..
