Red-hot Ahmed Musa has told Eagles coach Stephen Keshi he can lead Eagles attack at next year's AFCON in South Africa.
Jet-heeled Musa has been moved from a winger to a centre forward by his Russian club CSKA Moscow and the results have been remarkable as he has now scored seven goals in the league as well as a goal in the cup.
The first of his brace against Kuban Krasnoder on Saturday was a typical striker's goal as he used his blistering pace to reach a long through ball before slotting past a helpless goalkeeper.
"I am enjoying my new role as top striker for CSKA. It has given me a chance to score more goals. I will lead Eagles attack well if I'm asked to do so too," Ahmed Musa told MTNFootball.com
He said his goals in Russia could also be attributed to the fact that he has fully settled down at the army team after his big-money switch from modest Dutch club VVV Venlo.
"I am also scoring goals because I have adjusted to the league in Russia and now know what is expected of me," he disclosed.
