Super Eagles melt Iceland with Musa’s brilliant brace

2018-06-23 17:39:00
An Ahmed Musa brilliant brace, two goals in the second half killed off a very physically imposing Iceland to give the Super Eagles hopes of reaching the round of 16.It was a win the Super Eagles players said was coming but Nigerians didn’t believe them. Who would? After that shocking performance in their 2-0 loss to Croatia.But when Croatia dismantled Lionel Messi’s Argentina 3-0, then the Super Eagles effort were a little bit appreciated.The 24 hours later, John Mikel Obi-led Super Eagles lined up against Iceland who had garnered respect and admirers with their solid performance in their first game of the 2018 World Cup, holding Argentina to a 1-1 draw.A loss, the Super Eagles would be coming home to dismayed and angry Nigerians and at the mercy of the mockery of the whole world who had watched as Nigeria’s Nike jerseys dominated headlines.Having faced huge criticisms over some of his tactical decisions in the 2-0 loss to Croatia, Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr rang the changes in his starting XI, bringing in Ahmed Musa, Kenneth Omeruo and Kelechi Iheanacho and dropping Shehu Abdullahi, Alex Iwobi and Odion Ighalo.He made some tactical changes also, switching to the 3-5-2 set-up with Victor Moses moving back to right wing-back, a role he is very familiar with at Chelsea.
