Ahmed Musa who scored Super Eagles winning goal against Iceland has vowed that the Super Eagles will beat Argentina in the last group match at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Musa said they are confident of defeating the South Americans after their decisive 2-0 win against Iceland on Friday in Volgograd.

Musa was the hero for Nigeria as his second-half brace gave his side the all-important win.

Argentina was held to a 1-1 draw by Iceland and suffered a 3-0 trouncing in the hands of group leaders, Croatia.


Jorge Sampaoli’s men must now beat the Super Eagles and hope Iceland do not get a favourable result against Croatia also on Tuesday, to proceed to the next stage.

”They are a strong team as you know, we have played against them and we won, they wanted us to beat Iceland so that they come at us,” Iheanacho told reporters in the mixed zone.

”It is going to be a difficult game for them, we have to fight together and do everything possible to beat them in that game despite they have good players and are a quality side. We need to show them we are from Nigeria.”
