By Bamidele Boluwaji:
Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa has expressed delight following CSKA Moscow’s qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League.
CSKA forced FK Rostov to a 1-1 draw in the last round of matches in the Russian league on Saturday, thereby qualifying for the play-offs spot.
Vitaliy Dyakov had put the home side ahead in the 45th minute in the first half but an 88th minute strike by Pontus Wernbloom for CSKA drew them level.
“I am very happy we made it to the UEFA Champions League,” Musa told completesportsnigeria.com. “We took part this season and we are happy to be part of it next season.”
Musa who scored 10 goals this season for CSKA, stated further that he is happy to be one of the invited players for the 2017 AFCON qualifier against Chad.
“It is a great thing to me. I am happy to be invited for the Chad match because I love to play for my nation.”
Meanwhile, Musa is expected to arrive in Nigeria on Monday or Tuesday ahead of the Chad clash which comes up in Kaduna on June 13.
