AFCON 2019 qualifier: Ahmed Musa back to training

Nigerian international and Al Nassr winger Ahmed Musa has resumed training one month after recovering from a thigh muscle injury

The 25 year old forward return comes as a major boost to Gernot Rohr’s men who will face Seychelles in their final group game in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier next month in Asaba,Delta State.

Musa last featured for Al Nassr on the 3rd of January in the Saudi Arabian Professional Football League which raised doubts over his availability for next month’s match.

The 26-year-old has not featured for Al-Nassr in their last eight games across all competitions, most recently against AGMG Olmaliq in the AFC Champions League.

Musa is expected to feature in Al-Nassr’s next game against Al Feiha on February 23, exactly one month before the Super Eagles clash with Seychelles.

Musa has scored five goals with four assists in 14 League appearances.

The Super Eagles assistant captain has been in terrific form for the national team before the injury and spearheading the team resurgence under Gernot Rohr.
