Ahmed Musa plays as a forward and left winger for Saudi Arabian team Al-Nassr and the Nigeria national team.

Ahmed Musa became the first Nigerian to score in two FIFA World Cup competitions, after scoring two times against Iceland in the group stage of the Russia 2018 World Cup and twice against Argentina in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The Nigerian International was loaned to JUTH F.C. in 2008 where he played 18 games, scoring four goals in his first two professional seasons for the Healers.

The winger was transferred to Dutch club VVV-Venlo in summer 2010, but the move was not allowed to go through because he was only 17 years of age and thus not eligible.

Ahmed Musa won the AIT footballer of the year award on 8 March 2011.

The player signed for Russian side CSKA Moscow on 7 January 2012 for an undisclosed fee, and by 1s of June 2015, Musa signed a new four-year contract with CSKA until the end of the 2018-19 season.

By July 8 2016, Musa moved to Leicester City for a club record £16.6 million and scored his first goals with the club in a friendly against Barca in the 2016 International Champions Cup which they lost 4-2.

On 30 January 2018, the striker made a comeback to CSKA Moscow on loan for the remainder of the 2017-18 season.

Musa switched to Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr on 4 August 2018 for a reported fee of £14.5 million.

In April 2010, Super Eagles Coach Lars Lagerbäck called him up to join the national team camp prior to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

On 5 August 2010, Musa, at the age of 17, made his debut for the Super Eagles in a qualifier game for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations against Madagascar, where he came on as a substitute for John Obi Mikel.

Musa found the back of the net for the first time for the Super Eagles in a March 2011 friendly against Kenya.

In April 2011, Ahmed Musa’s name was included in the under-20 Flying Eagles squad to represent Nigeria in the 2011 African Youth Championship qualifiers.

After the opening match against defending champions Ghana, Musa won the most valuable player award.

After appearing in all of Nigeria’s qualifying games, Musa was named in Stephen Keshi’s team for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Musa was involved in a dispute with his estranged wife Jamila in April 2017 which resulted in the police being called to his London home.

Musa confirmed the news of the death of his mother Sarah Musa on 24th of January, 2019.
