VIDEO: Ahmed Musa nets for Karagumruk in nine-goal Turkish Cup thriller

Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa was on target for his Turkish side Fatih Karagumruk in their Turkish Cup Round of 16 clash against Konyaspor which ended 5-4 after 120 minutes of action.

Fatih Karagumruk took the lead just seven minutes into the match through German midfielder Levent Mercan. Ahmed Hassan Koka scored twice to turn the game on its head for Konyaspor. The Egyptian striker first equalised in the 11th minute before he scored from the spot in the 21st minute to put his side ahead.

Ahmed Musa scored in the 29th minute to draw Fatih Karagumruk level. The Super Eagles forward made an intelligent run from the far end of the box and connected with a cross but saw his effort come back off the crossbar before heading the ball home from close range to draw his side level.

Here is a video of the goal from Ahmed Musa:

Amilton put Konyaspor back in front on the hour mark before former Chelsea, Liverpool and AC Milan striker Fabio Borini scored twice in the 67th and 80th minutes to put Fatih Karagumruk back ahead with ten minutes left in the match.

Turkish midfielder Musa Cagiran was not willing to accept a Konyaspor defeat, and scored in the 87th minute to send the match to another 30 minutes of action.

Former Borussia Dortmund striker Emre Mor scored what eventually turned out to be the winner in the 101st minute to send Ahmed Musa and the rest of the Fatih Karagumruk side into the quarterfinals of the Turkish Cup.

Ahmed Musa also scored for the club on his debut in the Turkish Super Lig and also in the Turkish Cup. He made two substitute appearances at the just-concluded Africa Cup of Nations for Nigeria as they crashed out in the first knockout round.
