Musa fires CSKA to top four finish

Ahmed Musa delivered a match-winning performance to wrap up his loan spell with CSKA Moscow in their 2-1 victory over Anzhi Makhachkala in their final game of the 2017-18 Russian Premier League season.

With that performance, Musa who was rated MOTM from the encounter by statistical website, whoscored with a 7.67 rating has had a hand in ten goals (seven goals, three assists) from 16 outings in all competitions for the club.

CSKA would finish second in the league standings with 58 points though, two points off Lokomotiv in the summit of the table.He is certain to be one of the players to be named to Gernot Rohr’s 23-man World Cup list for the Super Eagles traveling contingent to Russia.
