Musa grabbed an assist in a game for Kano Pillars; Super Eagles captain off to a good start in the NPFL.
It was a cagey game with very few chances, and Musa struggled for a long time.
In the 80th minute, however, he set up with the only goal of the game with a through pass to Rabiu Ali, who finished with his left foot to make amends for his missed spot-kick earlier.
Musa was also the captain of the day after Ali handed him the captain’s armband before kickoff.
With the win, Pillars maintain the second position on the table with 40 points from 21 matches.
