The thing all defenders hate in strikers is speed. They hate turning around, because that is when they are at their weakest, and it’s usually forwards with fiery pace who are able to unsettle them. Nigeria have such a footballer in 24-year-old Leicester City attacker Ahmed Musa. Blessed with blinding speed, he’s in on goal before the opposition has had an opportunity to blink. Musa came to prominence at Russian club CSKA Moscow before signing for Leicester last season. It proved to be a bit of a struggle adapting to the English Premier League and he was in and out of the team. He will be much better next season, when he will be expected to give full vent to his ability to terrorise defences. Despite his club struggles, Musa has, nevertheless, been in top form for Nigeria – and, in last week’s 3-0 friendly hammering of Togo, he netted twice. He’s in scoring form; Bafana have been warned.
