Ahmed Musa speaks on ‘retiring from Super Eagles’

Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has clarified rumours that he has retired from international duty.

Musa did not feature in any of Nigeria’s seven matches at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) where the team finished as runners-up.

The former Leicester forward last started a game for the national team in 2021 during a World Cup qualifier against Cape Verde. He played 67 minutes in a 2-0 victory.

His most recent appearance was a seven-minute cameo in a friendly game against Guinea in January.

Musa has also been without a club since his contract with Turkish side Sivasspor was terminated in February.

But speaking with reporters after a friendly match he organized, Musa clarified: “I only took a little break from the national team.

“But I didn’t exit the team.”
