[Goals Highlight] Nigeria vs Iceland 2-0 – Highlights #WorldCup #NGAISL

The Albiceleste might be in disarray right now, but if they can pull together then all might not be lost in their pursuit of World Cup glory

They were gone. Players reportedly calling for the manager to be sacked mid-tournament, the coach himself blaming the players and television presenters holding moments of silence to commemorate their dashed World Cup hopes.

And yet, Argentina and Lionel Messi are still alive. Just.

Ahmed Musa might not be the first player that comes to mind when reflecting on the heroes of Argentine football. He has, in fact, previously been a thorn in their side having scored both Super Eagles goals in a 2-2 draw with the Albiceleste at the 2014 tournament.

But, after his superb control and half-volleyed finish followed by a composed effort proved enough to beat Iceland 2-0 here in Volgograd, he will be the toast of Buenos Aires tonight. Getting through to the knockout stages, though, remains firmly on Argentina's shoulders.

Messi & Co. now know that only a win in their final Group D game against Nigeria will be enough for them to reach the last 16. Even then it might not be enough should Iceland also pick up three points and better their result against what promises to be a much-changed Croatia side.
