Ivorian football legend Didier Drogba lavished praise on Ahmed Musa after the Leicester City striker's World Cup heroics for Nigeria.

Musa hit a brace in the Super Eagles' 2-0 defeat of Iceland to set his side up for qualification out of Group D.

The 25 year-old Leicester City striker's first was a delightful volley having controlled Victor Moses' cross.

His second, sandwiched in-between a crossbar-thumping effort from the left, was a mazy run rounded off with a calm finish.

And Drogba, who notched two World Cup goals in eight appearances for Ivory Coast, was particularly impressed with Musa's first.

"That's a great finish," Drogba said on the BBC.

"The first touch is unbelievable. That’s the perfect touch to finish a goal.

"It's a good ball, a good touch - most of the time it's a goal.

"That's what makes it a beautiful goal. Wow." (Leicestermecury.co.UK)
