“Lionel Musa",The South America chanted after putting Iceland to the sword

Ahmed Musa is ready to inspire Nigeria to victory over Argentina in their final 2018 FIFA World Cup group game, having apparently been described as 'Lionel Musa' in South America.

The 25-year-old scored both goals in the 2-0 win over Iceland in Volgograd, which lifted Nigeria into second in Group D.

The result also means Argentina's hopes of reaching the last 16 are still alive, despite their damaging 3-0 loss to Croatia, with Jorge Sampaoli's side knowing that a win over Nigeria in St Petersburg on Tuesday evening (Wednesday morning AEST) could be enough to see them through.

Musa's double took him to four goals at the FIFA World Cup for his country, making him their top scorer at international football's showpiece event, and has apparently led to Argentina fans dubbing him 'Lionel Musa' in thanks for him keeping their side alive in Russia.
