Russia 2018: Excited Nigerians react to Super Eagles' 2-0 win over Iceland (Best tweets)
Friday night was one of those rare nights in Nigeria, the whole country was happy, everywhere was bubbling without discrimination, tribalism nor any arguments.
This was as a result of the Super Eagles first victory at Russia 2018 World Cup.
Nigeria beat Iceland 2-0 in their second group D match to keep their World Cup hopes alive.
Ahmed Musa was the star, the Leicester city forward scored two beautiful goals (both should be considered for goal of the tournament) to send Nigerian fans into a frenzy.
Nigeria now need to avoid a draw against Argentina on Tuesday to stand a chance of going through to the round of 16.
But before then, Nigerians all over the world have shared their excitement on social media and we have picked the best of the bunch, see below:
