A win for Iceland against Nigeria would have meant that Iceland would have been on the cusp of World Cup history.
Unfortunately it was not meant to be. Nigeria put in a performance befitting of the talent present within the team.
Two second half goals from Musa were enough to secure all three points although a missed Iceland penalty could have changed the game.
This result gives Group D favourites Argentina a great chance to qualify for the knockout stage as their fate is back in their hands.
