The forward is on cloud nine after the Super Eagles’ away win over the Blue Sharks and its historic international brand
Ahmed Musa watched Nigeria’s defeat to Cape Verde in Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier, as well as his 100th international cap.
Gernot Rohr’s men cleared their chances of qualifying for Qatar 2022 by securing a 2-1 victory over the Blue Sharks in the Estadio Municipal Aderito Sena.
With his first win after an impressive 1-1 draw against the Central African Republic, Dylan Dos Santos led Bubista’s men in the 19th minute after unleashing a left-footed strike past Maduka Okoye.
However, the lead lasted just ten minutes, while Napoli star Victor Osimhen leveled matters after taking advantage of a defensive error by the host.
The three-time African champion sealed maximum points in the final phase of the heavily contested match after Kenny Rocha Santos played the ball in his team’s net after goalkeeper Vozinha left his position.
For his participation in Mindelo, Musa became an international captain over a hundred to join Joseph Yobo and Vincent Enyeama in the 100-cap club of Nigeria.
Impressed by this double joy, the 28-year-old went to social media to express his happiness while appreciating everyone who made it possible.
“I can not stay calm as we continue to win. Thank you to my family, my teammates, supporters and not to forget the NFF, ”Musa continues Instagram.
‘I would like to specifically mention that this is also my 100th cap for the team. It is an absolute honor and privilege to be able to serve in this capacity.
‘All of this would not have been possible without you, because there is no’ I ‘in the team. You rock. Thanks again. Here are more victories. ”
Nigeria’s qualifying campaign continues in October when they welcome the Central African Republic to the Teslim Balogun Stadium.
Rohr’s team leads Group C by six points from two games. For the Wild Beasts – who have just one point from two games – they sit at the bottom of the tree.
Anything that is in Lagos’ victory will bend them out of the race to reach the global soccer presentation in the Middle East.
Musa will join Yobo and Enyeama along with Yobo and Enyeama become the biggest player in Nigeria when he appears in the meeting.
