Two exciting goals from Nigeria’s Ahmed Musa saw Nigeria bouncing back from its opening game defeat against Croatia and putting Nigeria back on public glare as the chances of qualifying for the knolcnout stages of the world cup is once again open.
Ahmed “The Icebreaker” Musa’s two delightful goals in Volgograd, secured Nigeria’s Nigeria’s first victory of the tournament and diminished Iceland’s chances of making it into the last 16.
Not event the penalty awarded Gylfi Sigurdsson towards the last quarter of the game could see the Ice guys through.
The Super Eagles are now second in Group D and their concluding group match against two-time champions Argentina will be billed as a winner-takes-all tie.
Apart from Croatia who have qualified for the round of 16, either Nigeria, Argentina and Iceland could still join undefeated Croatia in the next round but should Iceland fail to beat group leaders Croatia in their final match, a draw or better for Nigeria will be enough for them to progress.
