The first touch is unbelievable! Didier Drogba on Musa’s ‘beautiful’ first goal

African and Chelsea Football Icon Didier Drogba has lavished praise on Ahmed Musa after the Leicester City striker’s World Cup heroics for Nigeria.

Musa bag a brace in the Super Eagles’ 2-0 defeat of Iceland to set his side up for qualification out of Group D.


The 25-year-old Leicester City striker’s first was a delightful volley having controlled Victor Moses’ cross.

His second, sandwiched in-between a crossbar-thumping effort from the left, was a mazy run rounded off with a calm finish.

And Drogba, who notched two World Cup goals in eight appearances for Ivory Coast, was particularly impressed with Musa’s first.

“That’s a great finish,” Drogba said on the BBC.

“It’s a good ball, a good touch – most of the time it’s a goal.

“That’s what makes it a beautiful goal. Wow.”
