Lusaka, February 7, 2013, ZANIS — Ahmed Musa has told MTNFootball.com his first AFCON goal in Nigeria's 4-1 win over Mali on Wednesday is for his unborn son.
"I dedicate my first ever goal at the Nations Cup to my unborn child. I am expecting him next month,” a delighted Musa said.
“I am happy with the goal and the victory was massive for us. We deserved it."
The CSKA Moscow star got married in Kano about a year ago.
Musa, who was a second-half substitute coming on for Victor Moses, scored a beautiful goal after he was superbly set up by Mikel Obi, promised Nigerian fans to expect the trophy on Sunday at the expense of surprise team Burkina Faso.
"My target and that of the team has been to win the trophy, now that we are in the final, it is the trophy Nigerians should expect from us. They should continue to pray for us,” he said.
