Musa’s strike picked for goal of the tourney

Ahmed Musa’s second goal against Iceland has been nominated among 17 other goals for the Goal of the 2018 World Cup by FIFA.

The Leicester City forward latched on to a long clearance deep from inside the Nigeria half before he used his speed to outrun his markers before he slotted home for the Eagles to cruise to a 2-0 win.

It was his fourth goal at the World Cup after he also scored twice at the 2014 tournament in Brazil four years ago.

Other goals nominated included Lionel Messi’s opening goal against the Eagles which Argentina won Nigeria 2-1 and Croatia captain Luka Modric’s goal against Argentina.

Fans will choose the overall Goal of the World Cup not later than Monday, July 23.
