Musa Accepts Referee’s Apology For Disallowed Goals Over The Weekend
Nigeria winger, Ahmed Musa, says he has forgiven Gambian referee, Bakary Gassama after his errors cost the Super Eagles two goals, and a win in last Saturday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying clash against the BafanaBafana of South Africa.
Gassama and his assistants chalked off two Nigeria goals for offside but replays showed otherwise.
In the first half of the encounter, Musa thought he had assisted a Kelechi Iheanacho goal but saw it flagged for offside while the Al Nassr man, with few minutes left in the tie, ran onto Alex Iwobi’s incisive pass to score what would have been the winner in a 1-1 game, but again was met by the Gambian official’s disapproval.
The Super Eagles skipper had questioned the ref’s decisions by taking to the social media while poking at CAF after the clash at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
