The KV Oostende striker -a regular penalty taker for the Zimbabwe senior soccer team is held in high esteem in Belgium where has also been given the responsibility to take penalties.
With his team trailing 1-0 after Serbian forward Filip Markovic had thrust Mouscron Peruwelz ahead at the stroke of the first half, Mouscron Peruwelz conceded a penalty, and Musona accepted responsibility to beat Brazilian goal keeper Vagner Silva for the equaliser.
Montenegro midfielder Adam Marusic then scored the insurance goal seven minutes from full time profiting from a pass by Belgian forward Yassine El Ghanassy.
It’s Musona’s second goal in three matches of the campaign after scoring a wonder goal in a league season opener in a 2-1 defeat to Genk leaving watchers of the global game nodding in acknowledgement at a great piece of technique.
Musona, who finished last season’s campaign with 13 goals scored in the referee’s optional time, weaving his way past three defenders before unleashing a shot to beat the Genk keeper.
Genk had taken the lead in 50th minute before adding a second on 90 minutes.
The striker’s promising start comes as good news for Warriors coach Kalisto Pasuwa as he readies for the final 2017 Group L African Cup of Nations qualifier against Guinea in Conakry on September 3.
The match is however, a dead rubber as the Warriors have already qualified for the biennial soccer showcase to be staged in Gabon next year in January with a game to spare after beating Malawi 3-0 in the previous match.
