AFCON 2021 Could Be My Last – Ahmed Musa

Published

on

Nigeria captain Ahmed Musa has announced that the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations could be his last continental outing.

The Fatih Karagumruk star is among the 27 players in Austin Eguavoen’s squad in Garoua and he is in contention to make an appearance at his third Afcon on Tuesday.

Musa was part of the victorious Stephen Keshi squad that won the tournament in South Africa back in 2013 and he also helped Gernot Rohr’s team win bronze at the 2019 edition in Egypt.

Ahead of the Super Eagles’ first Group D match against Egypt at the Roumde Adjia Stadium, the 29-year-old captain disclosed that he had a discussion with the rest of the team on the kind of gift they can give him.

“I think this could be my last Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria,” Musa said in a press conference.

“I explained the importance of this edition of Afcon to my teammates, and I told them winning the title is the only thing they can gift me, and they told me they are going for it.

“My first tournament with Nigeria was the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa, where we successfully won the title, and my second appearance was in Egypt where we came third.

“Whenever I am called up for international duty, I will always be there.”

Okocha

Nigerian legend, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, has hailed the Teranga Lions of Senegal for their ‘heart’.

According to Okocha, Aliou Cissé’s side are fearless, and believe they can beat any team at the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Senegal booked their place in the World Cup Round of 16 on Tuesday night after beating Ecuador 2-1.

The AFCON champions will face England in the knockout stage this weekend.

Speaking on SuperSport, Okocha said,

“One good thing that this Senegalese team has got right from years back is heart. They are fearless and they believe they can beat anybody.

“Also, the character of their manager has been passed on to this team. I managed to play with him, he was not the most brilliant player, but he had heart.

“You can see from this Senegalese team that what they’ve going for them now is team spirit because they’re missing crucial individual players like [Sadio] Mane, who finished second in the Ballon d’Or.”
