Buhari Reacts To Eagles’ Crushing Of Iceland

Super Eagles Buhari Reacts To Eagles’ Crushing Of Iceland
Shannon Reynolds | 27 June, 2018, 03:27

With seven minutes left in yesterday's Group D fixture between Nigeria and Iceland, and with his side 2-0 down, Gylfi Sigurdsson had the flawless opportunity to get his team back into the game when Tyronne Ebuehi caught Alfred Finnbodvarsson on the back of the leg in the box and after a VAR review a penalty was given.

The Super Eagles have won all their five World Cup matches against European sides in their past appearances.

Another female fan said "I am so happy, so, so happy..." Always a menacing figure down the flanks, Moses completed four dribbles, made three clearances, three blocks and completed 57 passes on a game that was completely dominated by the West-African giants.

That came moments after he hit the crossbar with another shot and less than half an hour after he put Nigeria in front with his first strike.

For Argentina nothing but a win will do, although even that may not be enough if Iceland win, with qualification then coming down to which of the two sides finishes with the better goal difference.

What time does the FIFA World Cup 2018 Iceland v/s Nigeria football match begin?

With the game heavily poised in the second-half, as both teams were locked in a tense stalemate, Gunnarsson ordered the Icelandic defence up the field for one of his routine distributions into the box. "Nigeria is in good hands with this coach".

Iceland went close again in the 44th minute from a free-kick.

For the match against Croatia, Moses was ineffective playing on the wing, as the Super Eagles fired a blank, but against Iceland Rohr tinkered with his tactics and stationed Moses as an attacking wing-back - the position he has flourished in for Chelsea - and it certainly worked as the 27-year-old set-up Nigeria's opener. However, Nigerian head coach Gernot Rohr will be hoping that the former Leicester attacker will be able to build on his stunning performance in the next game against Argentina.

Musa was lively in the first half, making some unsafe runs in behind the Iceland wing-backs and looking to stretch the opposition defence.

Nigeria were poor in the first half - failing to record a single shot - but they were much improved after the break, Musa adding another to his personal tally in the 75th minute as Iceland's rock-like resilience crumbled.

Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrimsson said the soaring temperatures of Volgograd - which are likely to be a factor on Tuesday too in Rostov-on-Don - had sapped his players. The Scandanvians, so impressive in beating England at Euro 2016 and taking a point off Argentina, can nearly subject Lionel Messi and co.to elimination if they win today.

His words: "Since I have been in Nigeria for two years now we play Mikel in this role as an offensive midfielder".

And the Leicester City striker is also the first Nigerian to score at two different World Cup tournaments as he netted twice against Argentina in the group stage in 2014.
