Ahmed Musa leads the victory dance after beating Sudan 3-1
Captain Ahmed Musa remains true to his word that he would fully support the Super Eagles no matter what role he plays in Cameroon.
The floating-footed winger has been offered a small role in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament so far but it hasn’t dampened his morale.
Completely neglected in the game against Egypt, Musa came on as a second-half substitute against Sudan and after praising the team spirit evident in the Eagles’ current setup, he shared a video of their celebration in the dressing room .
He wrote: Tonight’s game was nothing short of great team spirit with a common goal in mind: WIN! Cheers for more wins to come
Already, Musa has hinted that this will be the last AFCON tournament he will participate in.
“It’s the last Africa Cup of Nations for me, and I thank God for everything I’ve achieved,” Musa told reporters in Garoua just before the game against Egypt.
“We have a good team and we will compete for the title with all it takes.”
The 29-year-old was a member of the all-conquering 2013 Super Eagles class.
However, failure to qualify for the 2015 and 2017 editions of the AFCON means Musa is only attending a third continental tournament in Cameroon.

The Eagles staged a 2019 comeback in Egypt, where they settled for bronze.
With the Super Eagles already through to the second round of AFCON 2021, it wouldn’t be surprising to see coach Austin Eguavoen name a “weaker” side for Wednesday’s final group game against Guinea-Bissau, with Musa also getting more playing time.
It should be noted that the captains of Nigeria’s last two AFCON-winning sides, Joseph Yobo and Stephen Keshi, played a small role in those triumphs, a development Musa doesn’t mind, provided he lifts the trophy in February. .
