Ahmed Musa - Prospect For The Super Eagles of Nigeria
By Kingsley Goodluck
Published July 16, 2010

Ahmed Musa could be the clinical striker the Super Eagles of Nigeria, requires in their starting lineup. Musa finished the 2009/2010 season a high note scoring 18 goals for the Kano Pillars, which tied the former Nigerian Premier League record set by Ishaya Jatau in 1990.

A student of the Aminchi Football Academy in Bukuru, Nigeria, Musa can operate from any attacking position on the pitch. Described by Kano Pillars head coach, as a player with blazing speed, was acquired after the club marksman Bello Musa Kofarmata departed. 

It surprised Nigerian football fans that Ahmed Musa received a late call-up for Nigeria home-based Super Eagles after Nigeria lost its first leg of the 2011 African Championship of Nations qualifiers, a continental tournament which only allows participating nations select home-based talents. Musa was invited in the second leg against Niger but Nigeria failed to win and qualify for the 2011 CHAN.  However, Ahmed Musa contributed to the Super Eagles of Nigeria in winning the 2010 WAFU cup with 2 important goals.

Ahmed Musa caught the attention of then Super Eagles coach Lars Lagerback,  who included the promising striker on his 30 man list only to be cut when the final 23 player list was released prior to the 2010 Fifa World Cup. At only 17 years of age Musa has a very bright future ahead of him with the upcoming 2010/2011 Nigerian Premier League season and 2011 African Youth Championship qualifiers.
