Ahmed Musa is elated to have scored the goal that sealed the passage of his Russian club, CSKA Moscow, to the group stage of the UEFA Champions League for the third straight season.
CSKA won 3-1 at home Wednesday night to upturn a 2-1 loss at Sporting Lisbon of Portugal a week ago, with Ahmed Musa dealing the killer goal with just five minutes left of action.
It was the fourth Champions League goal for the speedy forward, who has also netted thrice in the Russian league. Qualification for the mini-league phase of the Champions League will guarantee the Russian army team at least 10 million pounds. “I feel very happy to score the goal that qualified us to the group stage of the Champions League.
“It was great getting the goal. It was a great moment for me and the team,” a delighted Musa told AfricanFootball. com “There was no point during the game that I felt we won’t win. The goal is for my family.”
