Musa, Messi Strikes Nominated As Best 2018 World Cup First Round Goals

Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa’s first goal against Iceland has been nominated as one of the best goals scored so far at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Musa’s goal was listed in a poll by CNN Sports posted on their Twitter handle on Friday.

The goal scored by Musa against Iceland in a 2-0 win was a delight to watch as he skillfully brought down a cross by Victor Moses before smashing the ball into the roof of the net from inside the box.

The other three players whose goals are in the shortlist are Portugal’s Ricardo Quaresma (versus Iran), Spain’s Nacho (versus Portugal) and Lionel Messi of Argentina (versus Nigeria).
