Ahmed Musa Clears Path For Eagles Return

Super Eagles of Nigeria vice-captain, Ahmed Musa returned to Al Nassr on a winning note, after an absence caused by injury and the death of his mother in January, with the ‘Knights of Najd’ claiming a one-nil victory over Al Feiha on Saturday.

The former Leicester City forward was given compassionate leave by the club due to his mother’s death while already nursing an injury.

Musa came on as a 78th-minute substitute for Abderazak Hamdallah who had put the team ahead in the 68th minute from the penalty spot.

The 26-year-old showed his gratitude on his official Twitter handle saying: “Important win mates! Good to be back on the pitch. Thank to all the fans for your prayers.” 

Musa will look to return to fitness with his return to Al Nassr’s squad in hopes of making Gernot Rohr’s list of invited players that will face Seychelles in the dead rubber 2019 African Cup of Nations Qualifiers final match and the international friendly against continental powerhouse Egypt.

Another player that fans will love to see with Musa’s return to the squad will be John Mikel Obi, who has been in blistering form since joining English Championship side Middlesbrough.
