Harry Kane is better than Messi then. They both scored 6 WC goals but Kane did it in one WC.

I believe that match was played in Abu Dhabi, UAE. It is not the Saudi league, but the Arab Champions League.

Does not change the fact that they have fantastic pitches over there my brother :lol:

I clearly said in reference to “World Cup” do you really think World Cup should remember Essien, drogba more than Gyan that reformed at 3 World Cups and scored 6 goals. Messi got to the finals and equally scored/performed overall better than Kane so your argument is invalid

And you think my judgement of musa compared to the rest of SE that played at wc is sorely based on goals ?? Everything was considered and when harry Kane can take his team to World Cup finals you can compare. There are 2 types of comparisons 1) best overall player 2) best player site at WC. When it come to the latter, the likes of Gyan, musa will go down as Africa top 5 sorely at wc just because of their overall performance at multiple world cups not just 1 single WC

Ok. Keisike Honda is greater than Eto. Honda scored his 4 goals over more than 1 world cup. David Vila is better than Messi.

In Musa's case it's b/c of performance in a whooping 2 games, 1 of which he lost & second one couldn't get out of the group stage...Gyan is a different level, he was a PK away from Semi Finals, lets please not try and put Musa in the same category, abeg sir!

Maceo you call his performance and 4 World class goals “merely 2 games” please why didn’t the likes of Kanu, Okocha, yekini, ikpeba, aghawonder, ekoku all score 4 merely world class goals at the World Cup?? They played 2 or 3 World Cups combined and couldn’t score 4 world class goals but the one that did is labeled as “merely 4 goals” okay o. Say no to innate tribalism, nepotism or biased judgement. Like I said, based on Musa performance at two World Cups for us he is presently SE greatest ever “WORLD CUP” player and Africa top 5 ever strictly at WC and can possibly end up being SE GOAT. You really have to be mad, demented, delusional not to label “baby jet” as Africa “WORLD CUP” GOAT. (Strictly World Cup) not overal

Because progressing in the WC matters more than scoring goals. If someone scores 4 goals but doesn't get out of the first round, you can't say they are just as good as someone who scores 4 to get to the Quarter almost Semi's. Please don't mention Musa in the same paragraph as Gyan, please respect yourself....abeg!

Why can’t musa be compared to GYAN smh what did Gyan achieve for Ghana? Musa achieved locally, internationally, clubsides, and country and you claim he cannot be compared to gyan. My friend keep quiet. Musa is Nigeria greatest World Cup player off all time while gyan is Africa GOAT World Cup if all time. However, musa still has 2 more world cups

How manly titles gyan win for club? How many ANC gyan win for Ghana? How many goals gyan score at World Cup? 6 At 3 World Cups and (2) penalties Musa cv is definitely stronger

Some people in this thread are drunk.

Musa has really managed to shine in the Mundial, which is commendable.

but he is not in Nigeria's top 40 players, talk less of greatest of all time. His record in the Mundial cannot be used to somehow extrapolate his overall quality. That is poor reasoning.
