Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has assured that his current clubless status will not prevent him from turning out greatly for the national team in the upcoming two-legged 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying games against Sierra Leone, Completesports.com reports.
Musa is ambitious to lead the Eagles to bag two victories against the Leone Stars – in Benin City on Friday, November 13 and in Freetown next week Tuesday.
Speaking when he visited the Flying Eagles during their training session at the Goal Project pitch of the Moshood Abiola National Stadium Abuja on Monday, Musa said the two games are very important for the Super Eagles qualification
“It is true we don’t know much of the Sierra Leone national team, but we have resolved to play our best game to beat them at our home and away. Two victories over them will give us the ticket to AFCON, so we won’t joke with the games,” said Musa who is expected to arrive at the Super Eagles’ Benin City camp on Tuesday.
“Playing without our ever supportive fans at the newly refurbished Samuel Ogbemudia stadium will not affect our games both in Benin City and Freetown. It’s quite a pity that Edo fans will miss the opportunity of seeing us play live because of the pandemic but we shall try to win for them,” he stated.
Asked if his lack of a club won’t affect his performance in the match, Musa said: ” though I have parted ways with my club in Saudi Arabia [Al Nassr] , I trained with them until I came down for this game. I am still myself and I will give my best on Friday”
“I will soon reveal my new club as soon as all the necessary details are completed. I hope to return to Europe as soon as possible” Musa concluded
