Nigeria International, Ahmed Musa has expressed great delight at scoring two goals against a team like Barcelona.
Musa, a club-record signing for Leicester City announced his arrival within two minutes of his introduction in Wednesday night’s game when he skipped past three Barcelona defenders from halfway to score, but the former CSKA Moscow man rued his side’s missed chances which saw them finish 4-2 losers to the Catalan outfit.
“We had a good game and I’m happy to score twice tonight but In think we could have done more.” Musa told Leicester City website after the game.
He added: “We lost the game, but we played well. As you saw in the second half, we came in stronger and could have levelled scores, but we missed some chances,”
The former CSKA Moscow winger struck his second goal in the 66 minute when Jeffrey Schlupp won possession high up the pitch before playing the 23-year-old clear on goal. Musa who drilled his shot high into the Barcelona net will hope he can continue in that rich form this weekend in the Community Shield and all through the season.
