Nigeria Beats Iceland 2 - 0 ⚽️⚽️ @FIFAWorldCup 2018 in Russia After An Exciting Nigerian Resurgence in The 2nd Half

Nigeria striker Ahmed Musa scored two awesome goals in their 2-0 win over Iceland in Group D on Friday.Nigeria had a terrible first half with the strike force seeming slow, and hardly created any meaningful chances.Musa scored twice in the second half to push Nigeria into second place above their opponents and group favorites Argentina. Nigeria will now meet Argentina in what is expected to be a thriller on Tuesday.


First Goal:

Right winger Victor Moses delivered a excellent cross into Ahmed Musa, who superbly controlled the ball down before striking it into the roof of the net.


Second Goal:

Musa ran past right-back Kari Arnason, then rounded goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson to score his second goal of the game.




Iceland Penalty:

Iceland had a great chance to come back into the game when Tyronne Ebuehi’s late challenge on Finnbogason, caused the referee to give Iceland a penalty. Sigurdsson missed the penalty when his shot went high over the bar.

The result now set up Argentina vs Nigeria match on Tuesday which Argentine fans are glad about because if Nigeria had lost the game to Iceland, they would be out of the World Cup.






The Nigeria, and Argentina match should be a thriller.
