Captain Ahmed Musa says good result is more important than personal accolades as Super Eagles set to battle Central African Republic in FIFA World Cup qualifiers this Sunday.
Musa is set to earn his 100th cap for Nigeria in the game, but all eyes will be on the Super Eagles who are under pressure from the fans, after the embarrassing defeat against the Wild Beasts on Thursday.
Speaking ahead of the game, Musa said he’s happy to be closer to the record, but maintains that the team’s success is more important.
“I’m happy that I am about to win my 100th cap, which definitely is a thing of joy and pride for any football player at international level. However, I am more concerned about the three points.”
“The three points here have become much more precious due to what happened in the first leg which we lost. The individual honour is welcomed but I am more concerned about collective glory and our country’s pride.” He said.
