CSKA Moscow of Russia attacker, Ahmed Musa is the cynosure of all eyes in the Super Eagles’ camp, as soccer fans in the World Cup host country started flocking round him the moment he stepped into the airport at Essenthuki, where Nigeria’s base camp is located.
Musa has become the focus and talking point, mostly because he players for one of the country’s top clubs, which he re-joined on loan mid-last season from Leicester City of England, and quickly hit the ground running with a rain of goals.
Young boys and girls queued up for selfies with Musa, who had previously distinguished himself with CSKA before moving to England.
He was also interviewed by the local media corps and was the last player to get into this room at the Eagles’ hotel, as all attention was on him and he opted to attend to the fans.
However, Musa is not the only Eagles player receiving attention from the locals, as left-back, Bryan Idowu not only plays for another Russian Premier League club, Amkar Perm, he was also born in the East European nation.
Musa and Idowu stole the show on the Eagles’ arrival at their base camp in Essenthuki on Monday night.
Idowu was born in Russia and showed this when he gave the vote of thanks in Russian, in the wake of a brief but warm reception by the city’s chieftains and mayor, after which the Eagles settled into their camp at Sanatorium Istochnik.
