A singer in Nigeria released a defiant song this week celebrating the country's fake World Cup jerseys and defending the right to wear them.

A draw would be enough to eliminate the Argentines but would leave Nigeria's fate hinging on the outcome of Iceland's game against Croatia.

However, the Nigerian Eagles who are in group D still stand a chance of qualifying as Argentina only has two one point having drawn their first match and lost the Second while Iceland has one point from their first game against Argentina.

Musa, who came into the starting line-up in place of Alex Iwobi, announced himself with two of the goals of the tournament so far.

Musa gave Nigeria the lead in the 49th minute after Victor Moses sprinted deep into the Iceland half and curled a cross to the near post.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Nigeria kicked off their 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign on a losing note following their 2-0 defeat to Croatia on Saturday, June 16.

But Iceland's playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson blasted his effort high over the bar. A loss to the debutants, on the other hand, will see them join Egypt and Morocco in shaming the continent by exiting the World Cup before their third match.
