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.”
