Nigeria star Ahmed Musa scored his first Premier League goal in Leicester City 3-1 home win over Crystal Palace today.
It was the Nigeria star’s third start in six appearances for Leicester since his big-money move from Russian champions CSKA Moscow and he celebrated it with a superbly taken shot from outside the box in the 42nd minute for the opening goal.
Algeria forward Islam Slimani provided the assist to the Nigeria forward just weeks before a crucial World Cup qualifier involving both countries.
Ahmed Musa was later replaced in the 81st
There have been suggestions that CSKA will be willing to have him back should he fail to crack it in England.
It was a most welcomed win for Leicester City after the worst start by defending champions in the Premier League.
