The Nigeria international scored his first goal since December to help the Black Red progress to the next round of the Turkish Cup
Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa was on target as Fatih Karagumruk progressed to the next round of the Ziraat Türkiye Kupası following a thrilling 5-4 win over Konyaspor at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium.
Musa, playing in his second game since he returned from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, scored Fatih’s second goal.
Levent Mercan put the home side ahead in the seventh minute, but a brace from Ahmed Hassan in the space of ten minutes turned the tie around for Konyaspor.
However, Volkan Demirel’s men were not behind for a long time as Musa restored parity in the 29th minute. The 29-year-old headed home from close range after his initial effort had hit the bar.
It was Musa’s third goal in all competition for Fatih since he signed for the club. The half-time finished 2-2, but it was Konyaspor that took the lead after the restart through Amilton da Silva.
But a brace from former Liverpool striker Fabio Borini turned it around for the home side. Konyaspor did not give up, though, and they got their equaliser four minutes from time through Musa Çağıran.
Çağıran’s goal sent the game into extra time, but they were left disappointed as Emre Mor’s strike in the 100th minute sent Fatih to the next round.
