[World Cup] Key Player Review: Nigeria – Ahmed Musa

This Nigerian side lack a genuine midfield creator, although Jon Obi Mikel plays a more proactive role than we’re accustomed to seeing with Chelsea.

Still, it’s mainly about deep defending before quick counter-attacking down the flanks, and therefore wide duo Victor Moses and Ahmed Musa will be crucial at transitions.

While Moses tends to drift inside more, Musa is a genuine speedster.

One of the quickest players at this tournament, his acceleration is incredible, and he’s developed his game in the past couple of years, offering more consistent product at the end of his runs.

He could thrive against Argentina and Bosnia, sides that leave themselves open to counter-attacks.
