Musa cancelled Lionel Messi's strikes twice before Nigeria fell to a third from Rojo, and the forward says his teammates deserve the accolade.
"I want to thank my coaches and my teammates because they gave me the confidence to play the way I did."
Nigeria stood toe to toe with Argentina for most of the game, and Musa says they came in determined to win.
"We wanted to win the game, and we are a little disappointed that we did not. But we are happy to qualify and we will try to improve in the next game."
