Recall that Ahmed Musa’s brace gave Nigeria victory over Iceland, in the 2018 World Cup Group D football match. Musa, who came into the starting line-up in place of Alex Iwobi, announced himself with two of the goals in the Nigeria vs Iceland match of the tournament so far.
Musa’s sweetly struck half-volley fired Nigeria into the lead just after half-time before he added a second with 15 minutes to go to make the Group D game safe. Iceland got a lifeline in the 82nd minute with a VAR-awarded penalty but dead-ball specialist Gylfi Sigurdsson blazed over the bar.
