Super Eagles’ winger, Ahmed Musa continued the search for his first goal in the Saudi Arabian League but fired blanks on his home debut when Al-Nassr made it two wins in two against Al-Faisaly, AOIFootball.com reports.
Musa, who was on target in Nigeria’s win over Seychelles last Saturday, started in an unfamiliar role behind the striker, gave a decent account of himself in the clash but could not just find the net.
It was Al-Nassr who drew first blood in the clash when Yahya Al-Shehir put them ahead on the 19th minute before the visitors leveled scores on the half-hour mark via the boots of Diego Calderon, with both teams going into the break level.
Nordin Amrabat then set up Gilliano for what proved to be the winning goal, three minutes after the hour mark, with Al-Nassr claiming all three points in the clash.
Musa was on for the entire match duration and had a game rating of 6.7, completing 83% of his passes, winning 5 duels and making 3 interceptions to help his team remain top of the league table.
