Iheanacho's perfect free kick to close the gap with Argentina

Patrick Power by Patrick Power @rfutbol - 0 2,210

Argentina went 2-0 up in the first half in Krasnodar, but Nigeria fought back well in search of a goal to reduce the deficit. At the stroke of half-time, Iheanacho found the top corner with a curling free-kick.

After 44 minutes, Javier Mascherano conceded a free-kick in a dangerous possition and Kelechi Iheanacho readied himself to take it.

The Leicester froward struck a subtle ball that sailed over the wall before dipping into the back of the net past Marchesin. 2-1 and game on.
