Nigeria’s Ahmed Musa punishes wasteful Iceland to give Argentina hope

Nigeria keeper Carl Ikeme

Nigeria lost their firstmatch 2-0 to Croatia and Iceland boss Heimir Hallgrimsson expects the Super Eagles to come out firing.

Another alternative to watch Iceland vs Nigeria is to try out the FuboTV 7-day free trial.

The Super Eagles are now second in Group D and their concluding group match against two-time champions Argentina will be billed as a winner-takes-all tie.

Nigeria survived late pressure from Iceland as Uzoho got down to parry away Finnbogason's strike from a tight angle on the left two minutes from time, before Sverrir Ingason sent a header well over from Gíslason's cross on the right in stoppage time.

Iceland held Argentina to a 1-1 draw in their opening game and could take a giant leap to the knockout stages with victory against the Super Eagles in Group D. And they did in that counter that led to Musa's winning goal that was just spectacular and they deserved to win, I agree.

The weird and unique story of this fallen star is one of the most intriguing in the National Basketball Association right now. Brooklyn), when he finished with 32 points and a career-high 30 rebounds in a comeback win against the Nets.

In the final game of the group stage, Nigeria play Argentina and Iceland face Croatia on Tuesday, June 26.

Needless to say, Nigerians were ecstatic at the stadium and across social media with their team's win.

That's their only hope at this point, because their first go at being frontrunners in a big game was disastrous.

Iceland had the opportunity to bounce back, with a penalty awarded following video review, but Gylfi Sigurdsson ballooned his 83rd-minute spot kick over the bar.

Weather forecasters are predicting heat of 32 degrees Celsius at kick-off on Friday, 10 degrees hotter than when Iceland pulled off its draw with Argentina.

On Friday morning, almost 200 fans of Iceland's World Cup soccer team - some natives of Reykjavik and other parts of the sparsely populated North Atlantic nation, others firmly seated on the Viking bandwagon - gathered in a cramped space in a midtown Manhattan pub. But if Argentina claims all three points, they can still advance depending on the result of the other match between Croatia and Iceland. They started to whip crosses in and get the ball in good goalscoring positions, but the scoreboard remained untroubled going into the half time break.
