Rohr Receives Good News From Saudi Arabia Regarding Availability Of Ahmed Musa For AFCONQPublished: February 20, 2019
Super Eagles assistant captain Ahmed Musa should be available for next month's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles and international friendly with Egypt, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.
The Al-Nassr winger has not featured for the Saudi Arabian Professional Football League team since January 3 due to a serious thigh injury, which earlier raised doubts over his participation in the national team's matches.
The latest update from Al-Nassr is that Musa has resumed full training and this good news will be sweet music to the ears of Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr, with the German preparing his squad list for the first two fixtures of 2019.
About a month ago, the former Leicester City star was granted compassionate leave and traveled to Nigeria following the death of his beloved mother.
The 26-year-old has not featured for Al-Nassr in their last eight games across all competitions, most recently against AGMG Olmaliq in the AFC Champions League.
The best case scenario is that Musa will be given a runout in Al-Nassr's next game against Al Feiha on February 23, exactly one month before the Super Eagles clash with Seychelles.
