Musa Voted MOTM Award After Brace In Super Eagles Win Vs Iceland

By James Agberebi:

Super Eagles two-goal hero against Iceland in Friday’s 2-0 Group D Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup win, Ahmed Musa, was voted Budweiser Man of the Match.

Musa’s selection as the most outstanding player in the game was announced on FIFA’s official 2018 FIFA World Cup Twitter handle.

The Leicester City star opened the Super Eagles goals account with a delightful goal after controlling Victor Moses’ pass before firing into the net.

He made it 2-0 after racing towards a long pass, beat a defender, rounded the keeper before slotting into the net.

“Congrats to @Budweiser #ManoftheMatch for #NGAISL – @Ahmedmusa718! Next up? #ARG,” the FIFA World Cup handle wrote.

    Well deserved, keep it up Musa

  • Nice one, I always believe in you in Eagles shirt. Patience is key. Your mistake was leaving CSKA Moscow for useless Leceister city

    First of all, let me use this opportunity to APOLOGIZE sincerely for underrating the Super Eagles. It was due to their poor showing at the recent friendlies and opening game against Croatia.I still believe there is a a kind of “BROMANCE” going on Rohr and Ighalo. I could see him (Ighalo) in one of the highlights mustering something to Rohr after Musa’s second goal. Ighalo and Rohr must be watched. There is something fishy between them as I suspect.
    Again, my apologies to all fans (e.g. Debo) and most especially the Eagles.

      I saw that too. What could Ighalo be whispering to Rohr?

  • Glad for d 3 points. We have dissapointed d naysayers by convincingly beating a team fifa ranked over 20 points above us, however with 2 penalties in as much games. We need to watch it and correct what needs to be corrected, smoothen d rough edges of our defense. Having said that I must add that, whoever u are, if u meet d super eagles of nigeria in d 2nd half of a game, u should be very very afraid. Bring argentina, bring france. we are ready.

    Air Nigeriaaaaaaa!!!!! Musa’s pace was a joy to watch. He’s becoming more mature in his approach. Brimming with confidence. The formation also soothe him to the teeth. With the 3-5-2 formation SuperEagles became more solid at the back thereby, leaving room for our devastating counter attacks. I will implore the gaffer to continue with this formation as we get into the business end of the tournament.

    Huge amount of money are involved between Ighalo and Rohr. While Ighalo brings BAD luck to the Team, Rohr Bank Account goes up. 8 Games with out a score for Ighalo. God Bless Ahmed Musa, Moses, Uzoho., Captain Mikel and All others too much to mention here.

    Tyronne ebuehi remain outstanding defender and preferable to shehu abdullahi, the chemistry or romance between Rohr and misfiring ighalo should not affect over 180 million Nigerians who are praying and believing God for their team. maybe we should jointly raise a protest tagged” IGHALO MUST GO” before the next match against the MESSIlonians or can we believe dat he is daft\not sensitive enough to see dat ighalo isn’t fit for the jury even after the match against the Vikings? cos he may still want to use him in lieu of iheanacho against the argentine. let ighalo rest and see what Simy can do after replacing iheanacho
