The result pushed the European giants to the top of the table with six points and five goals as they also beat Argentina in their second game while the Super Eagles are at the base with no point and minus two goals.

Nigeria bounced back from their opening-game defeat and boosted their chances of qualifying for the knockout stages of the World Cup, as well as Argentina's, with a 2-0 win over Iceland in Volgograd.

Musa gave Nigeria the lead in the 49th minute after Victor Moses sprinted deep into the Iceland half and curled a cross to the near post.

Iceland got a lifeline in the 82nd minute with a VAR-awarded penalty but dead-ball specialist Gylfi Sigurdsson blazed over the bar.

Iceland, who face Croatia next Tuesday, and Argentina, who play Nigeria at the same time, both have one point.

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.
