However, there were two calls involving Musa which could have swung the result of the encounter in favour of the Super Eagles.

Musa put his former Leicester City partner Kelechi Iheanacho through on goal but was ruled out to be in an offside position by referee Bakary Gassama.

He then went on to put the ball past the South African goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune to win the game for Nigeria only to be judged to be in an offside position again.

Replays of the two events showed that Nigeria’s two goals should have stood and the Al Nassr forward was not impressed as he took to his official Twitter account to protest.
