2022 WCQ: Musa Gifts Super Eagles Teammates N5m

Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has rewarded his teammates N5million following their 2-1 win against Cape Verde on Tuesday, in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

The money was from the N10million he was rewarded with for reaching 100 caps with the Eagles.

“For the 10 million, I’m giving back 5 million to the team,” Musa, who was surrounded by his teammates, team officials and NFF president Amaju Pinnick, said in a short video on NFF TV.

The country’s football governing body announced the gesture will be extended to other players who achieve such a milestone.

Musa also took to his Instagram page to to further celebrate his 100 caps feat and the Super EagIes’ winning streak.

“I Can’t keep calm as we keep winning. Thanks to my family, my team mates, fans and not forgetting the NFF,” his message reads.

“I want to specially mention it’s my 100th cap for the team as well. It’s an absolute honour and priviledge to serve in this capacity. All of these wouldn’t have been possible without you guys as there is no l in team.

“You guys rock. Thanks so much once again.Here’s to more wins.”

Musa made his 100th appearance for the Eagles after he was included in the starting eleven against Cape Verde.

The 28-year-old was later replaced by Henry Onyekuru in the 72nd minute.

He made his debut with the Eagles in 2010 in a qualification match against Madagascar for the 2012 AFCON.

He has represented Nigeria at two AFCONs (2013, 2019) and two FIFA World Cups (2014, 2018).

Also, he was part of the Eagles squad that featured at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil.

    He should work harder to force his way into the final World Cup selection (should they qualify).
    The way he fluffed his lines with the golden opportunities presented to him in that game wasn’t funny at all..you just can’t be making such costly mistakes in a match where the stakes are high!

    • Musa to force his way? He does not have to. If we qualify, his place is assured unless he is injured.

      The unity in this team is their strength. Kudos to rohr and Musa. Westerhof took anninuured keshi to world cup. Onigbinde took mutiu adepoju the o the world cup.

      A lot of factors are relevant for a team to do well on the field and in tournaments.

      The second team was so united even without pay to win a difficult match!

      And now Musa giving bout half of his gift to the team. This is way what tore apart the relationship between late yekinini and his team mates then.

      Musa is needed in the team because of this. Though it should be limited to 10 to 15 minutes in matches.

        If you say “his place is assured” (perhaps because he’s the captain’s armband bearer), then I don’t see the competitiveness for spaces in that. It means we wanna tolerate mediocrity going forward, and I’m sure, nobody wants that.
        All I’m saying is, he should improve on his game

    NFF has 10m to give to Musa for reaching 100 caps, Sports ministry has 500m to donate to Aisha Buahri cup abi wetin dem call am again, Sports Ministry has money to fund the 5-star trips of Amokachi, Odegbami and many other people who have nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, to contribute to our participation at Tokyo Olympics for the whole of the 3 weeks of the games……but they all dont have money to pay the SE for 2 solid years.

    And they want me to believe they are not INTENTIONALLY withholding the emoluments of the team for their own sinister intentions….? God will never stop putting all of them to shame….both “pharaoh and his horsemen”

      That simply means, it is not the lack of money that is stopping the payment of wages due our gallant Super Eagles and the reverred coaching staff but the lack of will to make this payment on the part of the debt laden authorities.

      Thoughtless and Misplaced priorities on the part of the Nigerian authorities is an integral part of their being; doing otherwise would be playing out of character.

      Though, it is hopeful wishing,one can only hope they come to their senses and pay what’s due the Eagles and the coaching staff.

      On a side note; congrats to the Rohr led Super Eagles for making us proud and doing the needful. Your antecedent is turning us into spoilt fans. And I like it…

      Dr. Drey guess what?


      MUSA has only 98 caps and not 100 caps as presented to us by NFF.

      -FIFA say so

  • Ako AMADI 1 week ago

    NFF has so much money it doesn’t know how to spend it It’s a Nigerian disease.

  • Good Move and it is expected especially as you have been carried by this team at least for the last 2 years, from a captain perspective also good and expected gesture so Kudos, but remember your team mates haven’t been paid for long so maybe a wise gesture on your part too so, as to not create animosity

    But I will humbly ask you to step aside now, it is time for a new chapter and Captain. especially as we are going into a world cup year. in this your current form you will be a liability to our attacking play and will be taking up space for more lethal potential that we have currently and, the sort of options in a attck we would need at the World cup next year if we qualify.

    This is also the case for Afcon next year, As I really can’t see you making an impact come knock out stage or even group stages for that matter in this your current form.

  • Somnething is fishy with the NFF, Pinnick and Rohr, I mean Musa the one player that does not merit his place in the team, is getting a bonus of 10 000 000 Naira for reaching a 100 caps of which about 20Plus were undeserving call-ups, yet team mates of his haven’t been paid for so long.. I dey scratch my head o. If these boys don’t get paid soon eyebrows should better be raised if they are not already because my own is certainly raised.

    Then this fake Covid test of Kalu and Ebuehi. Is Nigeria starting to shoot itself in the shoes again because things are looking good much like we did in 2013 after winning AFCON. Are we cursed lets wait and see. Like I always say time will reveal all.

    It is obvious that NFF Onigbese don’t value the work of coach Rohr and the players. If they considered it as serious work, officials would not have invaded the training pitch the other day, jumping up and down like kangaroos, distracting the players and disturbing training for a crucial international match. Imagine someone going into an operating theater during a surgery for the purpose of dancing shaku shaku with the surgeon!
    Why pay for services that you don’t value? As far as they are concerned, the coach and the players are way down in the priority list. There are more important things to spend the available funds on, mainly questionable expenses of officials!!!

  • Tunsak 1 week ago

    Can one share a money that has not been received? Moreover NFF has aligned with FIFA that Musa has only completed 98caps for Nigeria.

    • Dr. Drey 1 week ago

      So you’ve not told/promised someone before that you will give them some money out of some other money you were expecting…? I dont see any fuss here.
      98 caps or 100 caps, money received or not received, someone has been promised some money for reaching 100 caps and he has promised to share half of the money with is teammates…..I dont see any qualms there. The issue I see is that of the whole team being owed for 2 years and the NFF and Sports ministry having more than enough to fund jamboree trips, fund aisha buahri cup, fund gifts to 100 cap Musa and yet unable to fund bonus payments for 2 years due to “lack of funds”.

  • Edoman 1 week ago

    The whole Musa gift is fake and make-believe joke. How can NFF pay Musa for 100 caps, when he has 98 caps in reality according to FIFA. They only created an illusion and not reality. The same way Magicians would. God will certainly punish them one of these days, believe me.
