The most popular man and soccer player in Nigeria – the next 10 days – is Ahmed Musa who scored two scintillating goals against Iceland on Friday. Those points propelled the country’s Super Eagle to 2nd place in the group.

He blasted the ball 49th minute flawless connection from artful right-wing striker, Victor Moses, to secure the first goal. And, again, at the 75th minute, Musa, the former Premier League club Leicester who is concluding his new deal with CSKA Moscow froze Iceland.

Immediately, he became Nigeria’s all-time leading World Cup scorer with four goals. Next Tuesday, Nigeria.will take on the psychologically frazzled Lionel Messi-led Argentina.

Meanwhile, Musa has predicted “It’s possible I’m going to score another two goals.” If he does, a new superstar will be etched into the collective memory of Nigerians, Africans and the world’s soccer history.
