Super Eagles and CSKA Moscow odf Russia winger,Ahmed Musa believes his team will bounce back from the 5-1 humiliating loss to AS Roma of Italy Wednesday night in Rome.
It was the opening group game of the on-going UEFA Champions League for both teams and Musa revealed the early goals unnerved down and they never recovered.
The Russian Army team conceded four quick goals – in the sixth, 10th,20th and 31st minutes with Musa scored the consolation goal in the 82nd minute.
“We never planned to lose the game, talkless by such a big margin, that’s football. I think the early goals cost us the game and put us on the back foot, we had not settled down when the goals started pouring in and it was then too late by the time we settled,” a disappointed Ahmed Musa told African Football website.
Musa is however confident the Russian side will pick themselves up from this walloping.
“The game against Roma is over, we have learnt from it. I’m sure we will bounce back from next game,” he said.
CSKA Moscow will host Bayern Munich on September 30 in continuation of the Champions League.
