Ahmed Musa Scores Hat-Trick For New Club
Super Eagles of Nigeria star, Ahmed Musa, on Wednesday scored a hat-trick for his new Saudi Arabian club, Al Nassr, who defeated their hosts Al-Qadisiyah 3-O in a league game.
The Nigerian international, who had previously fired blanks in their opening two games of the season, broke the deadlock after benefitting from Abderrazak Hamdallah’s assist in the 21st minute before doubling the lead four minutes before the interval.
Musa completed his hat-trick in the 66th minute, after he was teed up by Moroccan playmaker Nordin Ambarat.
