Captain of the Nigeria U-20 team Musa Mohammed is not having the best of time at Turkish team Istanbul Basaksehir after he was sent off in their 3-2 win over Bandimaspor in the Turkish cup.

Musa who is yet to play in the league for the modest Turkish side has had two appearances for the team in the Turkish cup but unlike his first this ended with the 18 year old taking the walk of shame.

The man who captained the Nigeria U-17 team to World cup glory in 2013 and captained the U-20 two years later at the World Youth Championship in New Zealand struggled all through the game before he was sent off.

He was sent off in the 77th minute with his team 3-2 up and was lucky to see his 10 man team hang on to claim the win.

Following his dismissal he will now miss the next round of games in the Turkish cup, the only tournament he gets to play for the team.
