Nigerian Football Fetes Ahmed Musa On His 100th Super Eagles Cap

Ahmed Musa was still soaking everything in when his teammates surrounded him to celebrate his 100th cap for the Super Eagles.

Musa had just completed his 100th Super Eagles cap following his 73rd-minute appearance in Nigeria’s 2-1 win over Cape Verde in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on Tuesday, September 7, 2019.

The 28-year-old is the third player in history to hit 100 caps for the Super Eagles, joining former captains Joseph Yobo and Vincent Enyeama.

After the game, the players quickly surrounded Musa to congratulate him before assistant coach Yobo hurled him on his shoulders.

In reward for his 100th cap, the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick announced a N10M gift to Musa and revealed that it will be the norm for players who achieve the feat.

In turn, Musa promised to give half of the money to his teammates for their support.

He also paid tribute to Yobo and Enyeama and thanked them for supporting him when he first joined the Super Eagles.

More are coming; for me, I want to break the record,” he also said.

Musa is just one game from equaling 101 caps for Nigeria held by Yobo and Enyeama.
