Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa has welcomed a baby boy.
Excited Musa announced the good news on his Instagram page on Thursday.
I would like to announce to you all that moments ago Allah blessed me with a beautiful baby boy! Words cannot describe this feeling! 🙏 👶 🍼
The Leicester City forward recently reacted after his goal lost out in FIFA’s best goal of the 2018 World Cup.
Musa thanked his fans despite his failure to win the 2018 FIFA World Cup Best goal award.
Musa’s second goal in Nigeria’s 2-0 win against Iceland was among the 18 nominated for the goal of the tournament award by FIFA.
The goal, however, came 8th in FIFA’s selection.
France defender, Benjamin Pavard won the vote for his stunning strike in the Les Bleus’ second round 4-3 win against Argentina.
Despite failing to pick the prize, Musa who plays for English Premier League side, Leicester City thanked the fans for their love and encouragement.
“I just want to thank you all for voting. This goal is bigger than me, it has shown the world that Nigeria has quality on the world stage and we look to improve in the future. I am humbled by the love and encouragement.
“Thank you all again,” Musa wrote on his Twitter handle.
