Double celebration for Ahmed Musa

06 August 2015, 16:11

Johannesburg - Nigerian Ahmed Musa scored twice this week to keep CSKA Moscow in contention for a UEFA Champions League group slot just hours after his wife gave birth.

Musa, who came off the bench to help Nigeria win the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final against Burkina Faso in Soweto, joined CSKA three years ago from Dutch club Venlo.

Gambian Ousman Jallow and Ghanaian Gideon Baah were other African scorers in third round qualifiers, but they could not prevent Finnish side HJK Helsinki being eliminated.

The tiny winger will never forget August 5, 2015 as he bagged a brace for his club in a 3-2 away triumph over Sparta Prague and his wife Jemila delivered a baby girl in Moscow.

Sparta scored twice within 16 minutes of the second leg kicking off to build a two-goal aggregate advantage only for Musa to strike either side of half-time in a stirring comeback by the Russian club.


Goals from Gambian striker Jallow and Ghanaian defender Baah gave the visiting club a two-goal lead at Kazakhstan outfit Astana in faraway central Asia.

But a dramatic comeback from the hosts was climaxed by a stoppage-time goal that won the match and the tie 4-3 after a goalless first leg.
