Musa Breaks The Ice Of The Icelandic With Two Second Half Goals

  It was the first bit of incisive attacking play Nigeria had shown in their 139 minutes of action in Russia, and though Iceland threatened with the odd set-piece thereafter, the African outfit were well in control by the time Musa showcased his blistering pace to round Halldorsson and double his side's lead.  
 
 Musa – who also hit the crossbar with a curling effort between his two successful strikes – looks set to end his two-year Leicester City nightmare this summer and sign for Galatasaray, and he will likely pose the biggest threat to Argentina's lumbering defensive unit. But otherwise this is not a Nigeria team that should strike fear into anyone, no matter how much of a shambles Argentina have become.
Well that result has blown this group wide open! Croatia have confirmed qualification, but each of the other three nations can still make it to the knockout stages. Musa hit an outstanding double, rifling home after Moses' pacey counter-attack, before cutting inside from the left and rounding the
goalkeeper for the second. Gylfi Sigurdsson missed a late penalty - awarded courtesy of VAR - as Iceland desperately searched for a way back into the game, but they just couldn't muster enough going forward. It finishes 2-0 to Nigeria!
