Ahmed Musa powered home a sensational strike to inspire his side to a massive 6-1 defeat of Al Adalh in the Saudi Pro League on Tuesday, August 25, at the King Fahd International Stadium.

The Super Eagles captain unleashed a ferocious shot from about 30-yards-out leaving hapless Ali Al Mazidi in goal as there was little or nothing he could do to deny the Nigerian from scoring his side’s third goal in the game.

Al Adalh surprisingly opened the scoring as early as the 13th minute when Carolus Andriamahitsinoro found the back of the net to stun the hosts early in the game.

Al-Nassr responded less than sixty seconds later through Abderrazak Hamdallah and then Giuliano put the hosts 2-1 ahead in the 17th minute.

It was Musa’s goal that wowed his teammates, coaches and the few fans in the stands with sensational strike in the 28th minute.

The ball fell towards the unmarked Super Eagles forward who rifled the ball into the net to the screams of the entire stadium as they led 3-1. "Alhamdulillah," he captioned footage of the goal.

That goal proved to be the tonic needed as Giuliano and Abderrazak Hamdalla later completed their brace each before Abdullaziz Al Dawsari completed the rout. It ended: Al-Nassr 6-1 Al Adalh.

Al-Nassr are currently second on the standings with 57 points from 27 matches, while Al Hilal continue to lead the pack with 63 points.

Musa has been impressive for his side since the action returned in the Saudi Pro League.

The 27-year-old on Thursday night, August 20, continued with his impressive performance in the Saudi Arabian Super League by creating two assists for his club.

With the two assists Musa inspired Al-Nassr to record a 4-1 win over their hosts Al Taawon in a tough encounter.

Legit.ng earlier reported former Nigerian international Victor Anichebe has disclosed plans that he hopes to own a football club in the near future in order to improve black, Asian and minority (BAME) representation at boardroom level within the sport.

Statistics have shown that a lack of ethnic minority representation in positions of power across sports has come to light through the Black Lives Matter movement.

“We have to have a seat at the table to really effect change,” Complete Sports quoted Anichebe as saying.
