Is Ahmed Musa finished?

Having gone 16 games without a goal this season in the average Saudi Arabian Premier League, is Nigeria International Ahmed Musa a spent force?

The Super Eagles speed merchant, who has featured in 12 out of 17 league games this season, hasn't registered a single goal. He does however have 4 assists to his name.

The 2018 Super Eagles winger did find the back of the net in the Kings Cup competition when he scored 2 goals against Afif FC on 9 November 2019.

That, thus far, remains his highest point as far as goal scoring is concerned this season.

Musa hasn't always been a very prolific goal scorer.

But 16 odd matches without a goal for an international winger in the Saudi Arabian league does not make for comfortable reading.

Some Super Eagles wingers aren't doing too badly : Moses Simon is scoring goals in France whilst Chukwueze continues to be relevant in France.

Others - Samuel Kalu and Henry Onyekuru - have slightly lost their ways recently.

As for Musa, he needs to rediscover his scoring boots sooner rather than later as key Afcon and World Cup qualifiers await the Super Eagles.

Playing in the Saudi Arabian league is one thing, not scoring in the same league will be seen as unacceptable to many Super Eagles fans.
