Musa goal delights Amokachi

Daniel Amokachi South Africa Ahmed Musa Goal

Super Eagles caretaker coach, Daniel Amokachi, has heap praises on Ahmed Musa after the player’s goal earned the Super Eagles a 1-1 draw with South Africa on Sunday.

Amokachi had Musa to thank for the draw after the attacker’s stunning goal gave Nigeria an 85th-minute lead before Bongani Zungu levelled the game in 94th minute.

“[Musa] is a good player, we all know what an experienced player he is and what a world class player he is, and you could see the difference [he made] in the goal he scored,” said Amokachi.

“It’s also reminiscent of the goal he scored against Argentina at the World Cup.

“He’s brilliant at getting the ball and turning at the edge of the 18-yard area, and swinging it into the corner.”

Bafana’s dominance on the day was not wholly unexpected for Amokachi after he fielded a relatively inexperienced side.

“We had about 90 percent of our players who are collecting their first, second or third cap,” he said.

“The most important thing was for us to see whether they were built well enough, and experienced enough to take our football to the next level.”

Amokachi drew both positives and negatives from the performance, but was particularly disappointed with how injuries affect their rhythm.

“There are a lot of loopholes in football, definitely you will see a lot of good stuff and bad stuff,” he said.

“There were some injuries that crept in and that forced to make all six substitutions when we otherwise wouldn’t have to.

“When you do that in such an intense game, that’s what causes the loopholes, and it affected us defensively, I think we went to sleep when we shouldn’t have.”
