Former Nigeria captain Sunday Oliseh has stated that the Super Eagles Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign is back on track after they beat Iceland 2-0 in their second Group D game in Volgograd on Friday.
After a lacklustre first half performance that saw the Super Eagles fail to register a single shot on target, they stormed back in the second half with Ahmed Musa scoring both goals.
The Leicester City star’s first goal was a delight to watch as he skillfully controlled Victor Moses’ cross before firing it into the net.
His second goal saw him race towards a long pass, go past his marker, round the keeper before coolly slotting it into the net.
Oliseh, a former coach of the Super Eagles, praised the whole team especially Francis Uzoho, Wilfred Ndidi, Leon Balogun and Musa for their performance.
“Our World Cup 2018 is on! Great result for the Super Eagles vs Iceland.The boys all did well especially in d 2nd half, particularly impressed with Musa,Ndidi, Uzoho & Balogun. Great that you all supported & prayed like we implored earlier, cheers guys,” the two-time FIFA World Cup star (USA 1994, France 1998) wrote on his verified Twitter handle.
