Super Eagles skipper Ahmed Musa has played down Black Stars of Ghana’s superior record against Nigeria.

The Black Stars enjoy a superior record to Nigeria with 21 wins, 10 defeats and 18 draws.

In their last four fixtures, the Black Stars have recorded three wins and secured a draw.

For the Eagles, their last win against the Black Stars was at the 2006 AFCON.

And looking forward to Friday’s game, Musa posited that Ghana’s superior record against Nigeria would count for nothing when they clash for the 2022 World Cup ticket.

“Nigeria and Ghana is about politics, jollof, about music, acting, fashion everything and thank God football has brought us together to show who is the King,” Musa said in a video published on NFF TV.

“And for the record, I’m not going to say anything concerning that because they have good record against Nigeria but this is a new generation of Super Eagles.”

Meanwhile, Maduka Okoye has been ruled out of the tie due to illness and has been  replaced by Enyimba’s John Noble.

    This kind illness without name..

    I suspect something that they are not telling us.. akupugoma doesn’t want to play, now maduka is sick.. this German boys self..

    You no sick since, with all your clean sheets in dutch league.. okay no problem!

    • Okoye was not allowed to leave the airport in Holland after he was detected with covid 19 signs but they haven’t made a medical checkup yet, so there is a possibility he may guy be available for the second. One but since Noble has replaced him it’s finished

  • Bro, past event is history, at least they should be frightened because we are 34th in the world and Ghana is 61, that even is a morale boost. I don’t know where Ghana got their confidence from, just because they are playing at Kumasi, (how did Ayew recover so fast From covid 19? But Okoye is now missing through thesame Virus I wish okoye canbe available for the second leg so they shouldn’t call Noble. Even the Noble is injured from his last match obviously Eguaveon doesn’t watch the NPFL but Noble will still come even though he knows he isn’t 100% fit

      Fifa record is one of the most silly records in the world

      Is done by college students doing internship at fifa office lol

      Even crèche African student can do a better job at that ranking than what these college dropouts are doing in Zurich haha

      Musa knows the record and if he isn’t scared about it, he wldnt talk about it

      Musa ll be remembered as the Nigerian captain that lost to Ghana in BABA YARA SATDUIM

    • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

      Ghana is senior and we know all the tricks haha

      We ll teach u guys how to win a LOCAL DERBY In AFRICA haha

      Ghanaians are confident against u and u shocked about it right lol

      • John-I 2 years ago

        Nigeria trashed Ghana 3-0 to qualify for 2002 World Cup. Why do you smartly avoid that??? Lol

        • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

          I didn’t bro but we fielded a local team, Accra hearts of oak in Nigeria

          I know u have supported Ghana a lot in the past esp on ZAMFOOT and I have nothing but respect for u John

          Do u live in ghana?

  • Pls o, I am confused I thought Ekong was made the captain before the afcon but now Ahmed Musa is regarded as the captain. Was going on????

  • MONKEY POST 2 years ago

    With all due RESPECT to FINIDI GEORGE and TIJANI BABAGIDA, AHMED MUSA is going down in HISTORY as the GREATEST NO 7!!

    • MONKEY POST 2 years ago

      *GREATEST SE NO 7*

      • Donbenie 2 years ago

        How exactly is he the greatest number 7?
        Because he is a Centurion?

    • Nawao… That’s a joke right? Musa is good, but you won’t rank Musa ahead of finidi or even Tijani…

  • MONKEY POST 2 years ago

    @Donbenie and @Oso Ahmed Musa is the MOST CAPPED SE PLAYER of ALL TIME.


    FINIDI and TIJANI have 6 and 5 respectively.

    MUSA like FINIDI has won the AFCON


    Plus MUSA won the WAFU in 2010 and is the only player among those 2 to have been to 3 NATIONS CUP and QUATAR will make it 3 WORLD CUP (If he eventually makes it)

    • Olawale 2 years ago

      Lol.. you are confused human being. I thought you said Ghana will defeat Nigeria home and away. Now you talking about Musa making it 3rd world cup cause you already accept defeat without kicking the ball.. naija all the way

      • MONKEY POST 2 years ago

        LMFAO! That is why there is “IF” in my statement.
