Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that former team captain Ahmed Musa has a very good chance of starting the next group game against Iceland in Volgograd on Friday.
Rohr was speaking with reporters after his side suffered a 2-0 defeat to Croatia on Saturday night in what was both teams’ opening game in Group D of Russia 2018 World Cup.
On Ahmed Musa, the former Bayern Munich defender said: “He has a chance to start the next game [against Iceland], we will see.”
On his team’s chances in Group D, Rohr said: “Everything is still possible. If we win the next game, all is possible in order to qualify.”
Anything other than a win for Nigeria in the game against Iceland could further damage the three-time African champions’ hopes of making the knockout stages.
