Buhari speaks on Nigeria's defeat of Iceland in Russian Federation

Super Eagles rated third worst team at the World Cup

Former Nigeria global Mutiu Adepoju has stated that the 3-0 win by Croatia against Argentina in Thursday's Russian Federation 2018 FIFA World Cup clash has thrown Group D open.

Goalkeeper Hannes Thor Halldorsson saved a penalty taken by Lionel Messi that would have put Argentina up 2-1 at the break, and have an arguably better chance than the South Americans of making the last 16 phase of the competition.

If both win on Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET, they'll be hoping to top the other on tiebreakers, where Iceland has a slight advantage in goal differential after two games played.

Argentina find themselves in a proper soup after their 3-0 loss to Croatia in their World Cup Group D match.

"So I think next game anything can happen - possibly I'm going to score another two goals", he laughed.

Earlier this week, self-styled prophet Tommy Yisa Aika said that the Super Eagles lost their opening match to Croatia because God was punishing them for hiring a white coach, Gernot Rohr. That is why l have said that in four years time the experience to play at the World Cup will be there. "We totally deserved to win".

Musa's sweetly struck half-volley fired Nigeria into the lead just after half-time before he added a second with 15 minutes to go to make the game safe.

With Croatia heading the group on six points Nigeria knew a second defeat would mean elimination but now qualification is in their own hands.

Excitingly Nigeria, Argentina and Iceland could still join undefeated Croatia in the next round, though the situation remains complicated.
