World Cup: Nigeria Keeps Hope Alive, Win Iceland 2:0

Nigeria has kept their hope for a second round qualification alive by beating Iceland 2:0. Both Nigerian goals came in the first half courtesy of Ahmed Musa. He scored the 49th minute and the second in the 75th minute.

Playing a different formation from the formation that saw them lose 2:0 to Croatia, the Nigerian team played with more purpose and could have scored more goals. Iceland however missed a penalty that was awarded courtesy of the VAR.

With this result, Nigeria is now second on the group with 3 points while Iceland is third with 1 point and a -2 goals difference. Argentina is at the bottom of the group with 1 point and a -3 goals difference. Croatia has already qualified and any of the remaining three teams in the group can still qualify.

Nigeria will now take on Argentina on the 26th while Iceland will take on Croatia at the same time.
