Musa torments Iceland as Nigeria clinch crucial World Cup win - in pictures

Two goals from the Leicester City striker ensured a 2-0 win for the African side in Group D

The runner-up spot in Group D is still very much up for grabs after Nigeria produced an impressive display to beat Iceland 2-0 at the Volgograd Arena on Friday.

Two brilliant goals from Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa ensured all three points for the African side, while Everton midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson missed a penalty for Iceland.

The result moves Nigeria into second place in Group D on three point, with Iceland and Argentina trailing with a point apiece. Croatia have already qualified, likely as group winners, following their wins over Nigeria and Argentina.
