Nigeria beat Iceland to lift Argentina hopes of reaching second round

Nigeria moved to within one win of the World Cup last 16 as Ahmed Musa scored twice in a dramatic second half to secure a 2-0 victory over Iceland in Volgograd on Friday.

 

The African side will be sure of a spot in the knockout stage if they can see off Argentina on Tuesday, after Musa's excellent double before a missed penalty by Iceland midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson.

 

The result was also a boost for Lionel Messi's Argentina, who are now back in the mix in Group D.
