SUPER LIG: Ahmed Musa scores in Fatih Karagumruk debut

Super Eagles Captain Ahmed Musa made his dream start to life in Turkish Super Lig as he netted on his debut for Fatih Karagumruk on Saturday.

The 28-year-old was the hero as he netted the winner in Stoppage time to hand his club all the three points against Gaziantep. Ahmed Musa who joined the Club last month from Kano Pillars was handed a starting role by coach Francesco Farioli and he did justify the decision.

Fatih Karagumruk went in front in the 10th minute after Gaziantep defender Pappy Djobolodji diverted a cross into his own net.

Karagumruk made most of their numerical advantage in the second half by netting the third.
