Musa makes 100th appearance for Nigeria


Ahmed Musa is pleased to have made his 100th appearance for Nigeria.

The attacker started and got substituted in the second half as the Super Eagles defeated Central African Republic 2-0 on Sunday.

Gernot Rohr’s side lost 1-0 in the first game last week and the German coach will be pleased to have gotten maximum points in the return game.

Leon Balogun scored the first goal of the game before on-form Napoli striker Victor Osimhen scored the second strike to seal the victory for the three-time African champions.

Speaking to the media after the game, the forward said he is pleased to achieve this milestone.

“To crown it all, important three points in our game. Thank you so much, I don’t take any of this for granted. We will continue to make history and secure wins.”

He made his senior debut in a 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar on the fifth of August 2010.

“The most important thing is the three points, and I will say a big thank you to all my teammates for supporting me, and by God’s grace, I know we can do it.

“And for all Nigerians supporting us and praying for us. We know we disappoint them sometimes but there is nothing we can do because that is the game of football.

“We will do all we can to make them proud and by God’s grace we will qualify for the 2022 Fifa World Cup.”

Nigeria sit on top of Group C with nine points from four games. Cape Verde defeated Liberia 1-0 in the other group game and they are now second with seven points from four games.
