Musa confident of outshining Messi on Tuesday.


Ahmed Musa is confident on outshining Messi on Tuesday against Argentina after scoring two stunning goals against Iceland.

The Leicester City striker, currently on loan at CSKA Moscow, became the first Nigerian to score at two World Cup as the Super Eagles secured a crucial win over Iceland.

“I think scoring against Argentina isn’t that difficult for me,” he smiled after his Man-of-the-Match performance in Volgograd. “We know the importance of the game. It’s do or die.”


Musa also scored twice for Leicester in a 4-2 pre-season friendly defeat by Messi-inspired Barcelona two years ago and said he always scores when up against the Argentine superstar.

“I can remember four years ago, when Messi played in Brazil, I scored two goals,” he recalled.

“And when I transferred to Leicester, I played against Barcelona and he’s on the pitch and I scored another two goals.
