Ahmed Musa brace fire Super Eagles to Victory over Iceland

Musa scored the first goal five minutes in second half after they return from half time break, in ten minutes later he added another goal and also fire a shot that hit the bar where he almost scored a hat trick in the game.  Star man of the national team of Iceland Gylfi Sigurdsson wasted a good chance to reduce the deficit for his team from the spot with around ten minutes to play in the tie.

The Everton man skied his effort high and wide despite sending goalkeeper Francis Odinaka Uzoho the wrong way. The young Nigerian goalkeeper was however called into action when he parried a cross across goal before Leon Balogun cleared to safety.

Super Eagles are now second in the group with three points, three less than group leaders Croatia while Iceland are third on goal difference ahead of Argentina who are also on one point.
