Nigeria striker Ahmed Musa made an impressive debut in Leicester City 2-1 victory over Oxford United in a pre-season match on Tuesday.

Demarai Gray and Jeff Schlupp provided the vitals goals that helped Claudio Raneri's side come from a goal down after Chris Maguire’s lead at the Kassam Stadium.

Musa came on in the 61st minute making his first appearance for the Premier League champions alongside fellow new signings Luis Hernandez and Ron-Robert Zieler in the comeback win.

The hosts opened the scoring in the 14th minute through Maguire before Gray leveled in the 28th minute.

The former CSKA Moscow forced Oxford goalkeeper to a save seven minutes after coming on with a thunderous strike from 25 yards out.

Schlupp netted the winner for City in the 69th minute to snatch the victory with the Nigerian showing glimpses of his quality.

The Foxes will next take on Lincoln City on July 21 before facing Mansfield Town four days after and later confront Birmingham City on August 1. (Goal.com)
