Musa’s second goal vs Iceland shortlisted for Goal of the Tournament



Ahmed Musa’s second goal against Iceland at the 2018 FIFA World Cup has been shortlisted for the Goal of the Tournament award.

According to FIFA, Musa’s spectacular strike is one of the 18 goals shortlisted out of the 169 in Russia.

He scored the classy goal scored in the 75th minute from a controlled cross from Victor Moses.

It was an individual great effort — as the pacy Nigeria winger outran Iceland’s Kari Arnason before rounding goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson who sprawled helplessly on the turf.

The huge crowd at the Volgograd Arena rose in salute for the masterpiece of a goal.

Other notables on the list are Lionel Messi’s goal against Nigeria and Cristiano Ronaldo’s free-kick goal against Spain.

The poll presented by Hyundai will be open for a week till Monday, July 23, 2018.
