Ahmed Musa is a Goal!!!
Ahmed Musa wheels away after scoring against Iceland yesterday.
Two goals from Musa earned Nigeria a 2-0 victory over Iceland in their World Cup encounter in Volgograd.
Nigeria offered nothing during a lacklustre first half but Musa turned on the style in the second half, first finding the roof of the net with a brilliantly-taken half-volley before a fine individual effort doubled the advantage for the Super Eagles.
In the process, Musa became Nigeria’s all-time leading scorer at the World Cup. In Africa, only Asamoah Gyan (6 goals) and Roger Milla (5 goals) have scored more goals than the Nigerian forward.
A point against Argentina could now be enough for Gernot Rohr’s team while Iceland – who missed a penalty through Gylfi Sigurdsson during the latter stages – must beat Croatia to maintain any hope of progression.
