Nigeria didn’t really get going until the second half of the second game in Group D when two goals from Ahmed Musa gave them a 2-0 victory over Iceland. That followed an opening defeat to Croatia in which they looked out of their depth.

Argentina could only manage a draw against Iceland and also fell to Croatia leaving them on the brink of elimination. However, Nigeria’s win handed them a lifeline heading into the final round of group matches.

Here are five things to look forward to ahead of the game.
