Musa: Eagles Will Beat Tanzania For Captain Enyeama

By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:

Stand-in captain Ahmed Musa has said that Super Eagles will dedicate a win against Tanzania to team captain Vincent Enyeama, who recently lost his mother.

Musa who was handed the captain’s arm band following the withdrawal of Enyeama and the dropping of Mikel Obi, told that Enyeama remains the captain of the team and the he is only holding the fort for the Lille star.

“Enyeama is still the captain until when he decides to quit or retire from the game,”  Musa told in Abuja before the team departed for Tanzania.

“He is a player I respect so much and I am only covering up for hIm in Tanzania and I will gladly hand over to him when he returns for the next game.

“We condole with him and we owe him the honour to win in Tanzania. We shall fight with all our might and ensure that we get a result in Dar Es Salam.” 

Asked how he felt leading the Super Eagles to Tanzania Musa stated that he cannot just express his joy at being given the opportunity to captain the Eagles.

“My joy will be complete when we win in Tanzania,” the CSKA Moscow star added.

    Wish the super eagles success in the next game. Let us play more friendly games and bring our fifa world ranking to the twenties or better.

    The Super Falcons once boasted similarly, just as Musa is doing now, that the Falcons would win their game then, for their late media officer. However, they came back from the game unsung and out. This is hoping the Eagles will not do the same, raise our expectations only to dash our hopes. Wishing them luck anyway.

    My condolences to the Captain of the team, Enyeama. However, Eagles of nowadays always boastful before any matches but in the end, “we are sorry ” is their favorite song. Real Super Eagles will never talk until after the match. Eagles of 90s don’t talk like this. Well, I wish coach Olishe and the entire team the best of luck. Therefore, It’s now or never for our indigenous coaches to prove their worth. God bless Nigeria!
