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.

Nigeria have faced Argentina four times in their previous five World Cup appearances, losing on all four occasions, but the form of the South American outfit have raised hopes that the Super Eagles can end that run.

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

The African nation struggled in the first half and was fortunate to not concede, but Musa went on the counter with Victor Moses in the second half to score the winning goal before putting the game away late, placing his team in a great spot while also giving Argentina life.

Croatia top Group D with six points following their win over Argentina on Friday evening, while Nigeria sit in second with their win over Iceland. "We know the importance of the game".

After the game, Musa was hailed for handing his team a win and Argentina a lifeline - and was feted for doing more for the Argentinian World Cup cause than the misfiring Messi.

Musa, who came into the starting line-up in place of Alex Iwobi, announced himself in magnificent style with two of the goals of the tournament. "I thought before this World Cup we were here to learn", said the German.
