‘Musa’s done more than Messi’ - Nigeria goal hero hands Argentina lifeline

Gernot Rohr's side now know that a victory over Argentina in Saint Petersburg will be enough for them to reach the last 16 for the fourth time in their history. We are very hopeful of beating Iceland and moving forward. The Arsenal man relishes representing his country and would certainly become a national hero overnight if he can influence the tie in favour of the Super Eagles.

The game against Nigeria should bring out a more attacking side from Iceland.

Others said that Musa had actually served Messi's World Cup cause more than his Argentinian teammates. Watch the Live & Exclusive stream of the game on MAX HD3 & beIN SPORTS CONNECT.
