Chelsea legend Didier Drogba commends Ahmed Musa first goal against Iceland

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has commended the skill Ahmed Musa displayed in his first goal scored in the 49th minute of Nigeria's 2-0 win against Iceland at the 2018 World Cup.

The Super Eagles number seven stretched his leg to control a cross from Victor Moses before firing home a fantastic half-volley from close range past the Iceland goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsen.

”That's a great finish, the first touch is unbelievable, that is the perfect touch to finish a goal, a good goal, a good touch most of the time is a goal,” Drogba told BBC during his post-match analysis.

”The difficulty in controlling the ball makes it a beautiful goal.”

The Leicester City striker would have scored a hat-trick but saw his effort strike the crossbar in the 74th minute.

”What a chance, people are on the sides, in the middle, there are strikers there so they have a lot of options,” added Drogba.

Today's victory means Nigeria are now second in the Group D standings with three points from two matches, three points behind group leader Croatia but two ahead of Iceland and Argentina.
