Super Eagles captain and winger, Ahmed Musa has returned to the pitch after a three-month injury lay off due to a knee injury, giving manager Gernot Rohr a huge boost ahead of Nigeria’s AFCON 2021 qualifier against Benin Republic and Lesotho.
Before the match, Musa had not played for the Super Eagles since the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Making only his third appearance this season, the 27-year-old played seven minutes of the encounter having missed the last three months. He was absent from Nigeria’s squad that played draws against Ukraine and Brazil in an international friendly encounter.
However, his return to action will serve as a major boost to Rohr’s hopes of getting the maximum points in games against Benin and Lesotho.
