Ahmed Musa has set a new record, after scoring twice in Nigeria’s 2-0 victory over Iceland in a 2018 World Cup Group D fixture on Friday.
The Leicester City forward is now the only Super Eagles player in history to have scored more than two goals in any World Cup tournament.
Musa has also scored Nigeria’s last four goals in the competition.
The 25-year-old only came in as a substitute during the 2-0 defeat to Croatia last Saturday.
But Gernot Rohr opted to play him from the start against the Scandinavians.
