Buhari happy over Super Eagles’ victory

Iceland Coach Keeper We’re Not Better Than Nigeria We’ll Play To Our Strengths

Super Eagles rated third worst team at the World Cup

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Super Eagles on their victory over the national team of Iceland in their second match at the Russian Federation 2018 FIFA World Cup on Friday.

In this case, Argentina will need to beat Nigeria and hope that Iceland to not beat Croatia in their final game.

If Nigeria wins the matcg against Iceland, they will be in second position on the group with 3 points.

Nigeria play Iceland on Friday.

Musa opened the scoring just after half-time with a stunning half-volley, before embarking on a blistering run down the flank and then cutting inside and slotting into the net to double the Super Eagles' lead on 75 minutes.

Iceland got a lifeline in the 82nd minute with a VAR-awarded penalty but dead-ball specialist Gylfi Sigurdsson blazed over the bar.

Nigeria are yet to win a single point while Iceland have one.

Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is confident the Super Eagles will bounce back when they tackle Iceland in their second World Cup fixture at the Volgograd Arena on Friday 22 June.

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr made some tactical changes, including bringing Musa into the starting lineup to inject some pace into the attack.

But he now says Nigeria can salvage the situation and become the first African team to win the tournament - as long as fans give him 750,000 naira ($2,092, 1,797 euros). A loss to the debutants, on the other hand, will see them join Egypt and Morocco in shaming the continent by exiting the World Cup before their third match.
