Nigeria vs Iceland: Okocha reacts to Super Eagles' win

Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is confident the Super Eagles will bounce back when they tackle Iceland in their second World Cup fixture at the Volgograd Arena on Friday 22 June.

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.

"I think scoring against Argentina isn't that hard for me", he smiled after his man-of-the-match performance in Volgograd.

Ahmed Musa gave Nigeria its first win at this year's World Cup, and gave Argentina a gift.

They will now face Argentina on Tuesday, hoping to book a place in the knockout rounds. "It's going to be a tough and hard game for us".

"What I like in my young team is humility, solidarity and fighting spirit. We totally deserved to win".

Iceland missed a late penalty awarded after a video assistant referee review, Gylfi Sigurdsson firing over.

The result left both sides, as well as struggling Argentina, still in the hunt to go through from Group D along with already-qualified Croatia. "We played against a very good team from Iceland who were better in the first half but did not score and we were better in the second half", Rohr added.

Musa made the game safe with his second, controlling a long ball without breaking stride and beating Kari Arnason before rounding Halldorsson and powering his shot past two covering defenders on the line.

Nigeria looked poor defensively in their 2-0 defeat to Croatia.
