Super Eagles goal scorer, Ahmed Musa has said he will put up a performance similar to that against Iceland when the Super Eagles confront Lionel Messi’s Argentina in Group D match on Tuesday.
Speaking on Friday after he scored twice in the match that ended 2-0 in favour of Nigeria, Musa said:
“I think scoring against Argentina isn’t that difficult for me,” he smiled after his man-of-the-match performance in Volgograd. “We know the importance of the game. It’s do-or-die.”
“I can remember four years ago when Messi played in Brazil I scored two goals,” he recalled.
“And when I transferred to Leicester I played against Barcelona and he’s on the pitch and I scored another two goals.
“So I think next game anything can happen — possibly I’m going to score another two goals,” Musa said.
Musa, who plays for English Premier League side, Leicester City, becomes the first Nigerian to score at two World Cups.
In Brazil 2014 World Cup, he scored both goals in Nigeria’s group stage 3-2 defeat to Argentina. He hopes to do it again in Russia.
