Nigerian striker Ahmed Musa on Monday night, August 10, scored his first goal of the season in the Saudi Arabian League which helped his team Al Nassr beat Abha 2-0.
This is an incredible one for the Super Eagles captain considering the fact that it was April last year he scored last for his team in Saudi Arabia which was a brace.
Al Nassr who played away from home scored the first goal in the 58th minute through Abderrazak Hamdallah and efforts for the hosts to restore parity were abortive.

Ahmed Musa eventually scored his goal in the 63rd minute to give Al Nassr two-goal lead with less than 30 minutes to end the game.
The Nigerian and his teammates tried their best to score more goals against Abha, but they were unable to find the back of the net as the encounter ended 2-0.
