Ahmed Musa scored a wonderful ding over the keeper in the 81st minute of a crucial 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Harambe Stars of Kenya.

Nigeria’s victory over their Kenyan host, Wednesday mean the Eagles now top the group after Malawi recorded a barren draw with visiting Namibia.

The victory thus put Nigeria as clear leaders in Group F with 8 points as their closest rivals Malawi were held to a 0-0 draw by visiting Brave Warriors of Namibia. Malawi is second in the group with 6 points.

With three points in the kitty and some breathing space on top of the log, Coach Stephen Keshi will be glad with Wednesday’s result as the team plans for their next game against Namibia.
