Al Nassr cruised to a 3-0 win over Al Quadisiya on match day three in the Saudi Pro League on Wednesday evening, with ex-Leicester City striker Ahmed Musa scoring all the goals at the Prince Saud bin Jalawi Stadium.
Since moving abroad in 2010 from Kano Pillars, Musa had not managed to score a hat-trick for the teams he represented (VVV Venlo, CSKA and Leicester City) in a competitive fixture until his treble today against Al Quadisiya.
The Super Eagles assistant captain opened the scoring in the 21st minute with a shot from just outside the box after receiving a through pass from Hamdallah.
He doubled the lead five minutes before half-time and Al Quadisiya’s hopes of mounting a comeback ended when the Nigerian scored again in the 66th minute.
Thanks to Musa’s hat-trick, Al Nassr provisionally top the standings with a hundred percent record in their first three games of the new season.
Next up for Musa and his teammates is Monday evening’s home game against Al Taawon.
