Super Eagles winger Ahmed Musa is hoping CSKA Moscow build on their winning start against Rubin Kazan when they face Krylya Sovetov at the Metallurg Stadium on Friday.
Musa admitted that Rubin Kazan were a strong opposition but the result was a fair one despite his side squandering so many goal-scoring chances.
“I’m overwhelmed by the win,” Musa who scored the winner told his club website ahead of the away fixture.
“The main thing is that we gained three points. The opposition was very strong. It’s always tough to play against this team. We played good and I’m delighted with the win.
“The most important thing is that we won. The score could have been 2:0 or 3:0, because we created good chances. We didn’t capitalize on our advantage in the first half, but scored on the last minutes and gained the three points,”
“We are in good conditions. We didn’t stop on the pitch, we weren’t lowering our tempo from the start to the final whistle. The opposition was tough, but our physical conditions helped us to clinch the victory. I can say confidently that we are ready for the season,” Musa concluded.
