Super Eagles Captain Ahmed Musa and compatriot John Ogu will put aside the sweet banters of playing in the national team as they file out in opposing sides in the Kings Cup on Friday.
Musa who has been enjoying a good run since joining Saudi side Al-Nassr from Russian side CSKA Moscow in 2018,will for the first time face a fellow Eagle in the Pro League following John Ogu’s move to relegation hunted Al Adalah .
The two Nigerians will be cynosure of eyes as Al-Nassr fans hope to see Musa continue to tickle their fancy while Al Adalah fans hope that the coming of Ogu will help turn the fortune of the club and perhaps see them spring a surprise in the Kings Cup even as they continue to struggle in the league and in relegation waters.
Ogu who joined the club on free transfer last Friday will all things being equal make his league debut away on January 25 against Al Ittihad.
Adalah were taken to the cleaners in their last league match by second played Al Hilal who after 7-0 scoreline were still eager to net more goals in what looked like a one sided encounter.
Al Adalah have only managed to accumulate nine points in 14 matches placing 15th on the log just a point ahead of bottom placed Damak in the 16-team Pro league.
Both Eagles it will be recalled were part of Nigeria’s squad to the last World Cup in Russia where the Genot Rohr tutored side failed to navigate past the group stage after losing 2-0 to eventual finalists Croatia, 2-1 to perennial rivals Argentina and beating Iceland 2-0.
The king’s cup which commands a lot of followership was first played in 1957.
