Musa ends three-month goal drought

Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, ended his three-month goal drought in style as Fatih Karagumruk defeated Sariyer 2-0 in the fourth round of the Turkish Cup on Wednesday, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

Musa moved to the Turkish Super Lig on a free transfer in July after a brief return to Kano Pillars and failed to find the back of the net in his last 11 league games.

Prior to his goal in the Turkish Cup on Wednesday, his last goal for Fatih Karagumruk was in their 3-2 victory over Gaziantep on August 14.

The Nigerian captain has now contributed two goals and an assist in 13 league outings.

Ervin Zukanovic’s header gave the host the lead in the 23rd minute before Musa scored the second goal in the 66th minute in what was his first appearance in the Turkish Cup.

The Eagles captain fired a thunderous strike that went in off the crossbar and it was a goal worthy of ending his goal drought.
