The Russia 2018 World Cup has spoiled us with amazing goals. From Nacho’s volley vs Portugal. Ronaldo’s free kick vs Spain. to Modrić’s curling effort vs Argentina.
Adding to that list is Ahmed Musa’s first goal against Iceland from Nigeria’s 2-0 win on Friday.
The 25-year-old striker’s vicious finish capped off a smooth counter-attack, but was it the best goal in Russia so far?
After losing its first match, against Croatia, The Super Eagles desperately needed a result against a determined Iceland squad fresh off a surprising draw with Argentina.
The Super Eagles didn’t appear to be in any rush, however, and they plodded through one of the most futile first halves you will ever see with Mikel dropping deeper, and Moses returning to Right win back that saw him make an impact at Chelsea.
But was Musa’s effort the best goal of the World Cup?
My head says no, but my techie-like susceptibility to recency bias says of course, YES!
It was the best goal. I might be wrong.
What are your sentiments?
