4 records Musa broke with double against Iceland

Ahmed Musa Super Eagles

Ahmed Musa’s remarkable brace against Iceland on Friday won’t be forgotten in a hurry as he has written his name in the history books.

Musa opened the scoring in the 49th minute after a swift counter-attack, then doubled the advantage when he rounded Iceland goalkeeper, Hannes Þór Halldorsson, and fired a shot into the net from close range on 75 minutes.

The 25-year-old broke as many as four records with the heroics.

He is the first Leicester City player to score at a FIFA World Cup.

By starting alongside Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi, it was the first time in World Cup history that more than one Leicester player started for the same team.

Musa also became the first Nigerian player to score braces in two World Cups.
In addition, the 25-year-old is the top scorer for Nigeria in the history of the World Cup with four goals, beating a record he jointly held with Emmanuel Amunike, Daniel Amokachi and Kalu Uche.
