Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia attacker, Ahmed Musa will be chasing multiple milestones with the Super Eagles in their games versus Seychelles and Egypt this month, footballive.ng reports.
Both matches are billed to hold at Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba, with Musa set to captain the Eagles once again, in the absence of regular skipper, John Miikel Obi, who was not included in the list of 23 players rolled out on Monday.
In Mikel’s absence, Musa has the chance to add at least two more caps to his current haul of 80, considering he gets to play the final qualifier for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations against Seychelles on March 22 and an international friendly with Egypt four days later at same venue.
Musa will also move up on the Eagles’ goals scorers’ chart should he score in any of the two games, as a brace would take him up alongside former Villarreal of Spain striker, Ikechukwu Uche to 19 and become Nigeria’s fourth highest scorer ever.
The former Kano Pillars, VV Venlo of Holland, CSKA Moscow of Russia and Leicester City of England star is already Nigeria’s top scorer in World Cup history, following the braces he netted against Argentina at Brazil 2014 and versus Iceland at Russia 2018.
