KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Nigeria captain John Obi Mikel has called on Croatia to be professional and not rest players against Iceland in a match that could yet decide the Super Eagles' World Cup fate.

But this time he hopes it will knock out the South Americans.

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.

Both Nigeria's clash with Argentina and Iceland's match with Croatia take place simultaneously at 7:00pm BST (2:00pm ET) on Tuesday June 26.

"And when I transferred to Leicester I played against Barcelona and he's on the pitch and I scored another two goals".

Ndidi suffered a hamstring injury in the tail end of the 2017-2018 campaign, but was declared fit to attend his first World Cup after going the full ninety against the Czech Republic in a pre-World Cup friendly.

Musa gave Nigeria the lead in the 49th minute after his sensational first touch on a cross into the box set up an unstoppable half-volley.

Iceland, roared on by thousands of fans from the tiny country, kept pushing and were awarded a penalty in the 80th minute when referee Matt Conger used the Video Assisted Referee system to confirm that striker AlfreĆ° Finnbogason had been fouled by Tyronne Ebuehi.

All three other teams in the group remain in the hunt to go through with Croatia, but Argentina and Iceland know they have to win to have any chance of progressing.

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

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