Soccer-Iceland drawing 0-0 with Croatia at halftime

ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia, June 26 (Reuters) - Iceland missed a flurry of late chances at the end of the first half but were drawing 0-0 with Group D leaders Croatia at the break on Tuesday and heading out of the World Cup, needing to snatch a win to stand a chance of reaching the last 16.

Iceland will grab the runners-up position in the group if they can beat already-qualified Croatia and Argentina, who were 1-0 up against Nigeria at halftime, do not better their goal difference, although a win for Nigeria would send Iceland out.

If Nigeria draw and Iceland win, the two teams will be split by goal difference. (Reporting by Richard Martin)
