Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa found the back of the net twice in Saturday’s Cup game in Saudi Arabia ahead of his return to the national team.
The Nigerian international scored his first two goals in the 2019-20 season as Al Nassr romped to a 5-1 victory over second-tier outfit Afif.
Ahmed played a crucial role in helping Rui Vitoria’s side qualify for the King’s Cup Round of 32 and also stretched their winning run to five games across all competitions.

After missing Nigeria’s two international outings against Ukraine and Brazil, Musa’s brace comes as a boost for the Super Eagles ahead of their 2021 qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho next week.
Musa has played five games so far this season, including four league matches.
