Ahmed Musa is turning out to be one of the stars of this World Cup with a possibility of his first goal for Nigeria against Iceland getting picked as the goal of the tournament.
However, Musa also holds a personal record which when considered critically surpasses Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
By scoring more than once in 2 games in the World Cup against Argentina in 2014 and Iceland in the last game played by the Super Eagles, he has outdone both Messi and Ronaldo who have not managed such in at the Mundial. Messi has 1 multi-goal game in 17 matches at the World Cup, Ronaldo has 1 multIi-goal game in 15 matches and Musa has 2 multi-goal matches in 6 appearances.
Essentially, the lesson for Nigeria here is to start Ahmed Musa at the World Cup on current form.
It is not every day a player holds a better scoring record than Messi and Ronaldo; 2 legends of our time and up there with Pele and Maradona when you consider the best player ever.
Ahmed Musa cab be proud, well-done sir.
