Musa Targets Revenge Against South Africa


Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia attacker, Ahmed Musa has declared that he and his colleagues in the Super Eagles will go all out for victory against South Africa later this month, because they remember how Bafana Bafana beat them during the first leg in Uyo.


Musa said on a radio sports programme monitored by that determination to right all wrongs would be the biggest factor propelling the Eagles for victory on November 17.

Though the match is billed for South Africa’s iconic FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, which the hosts want to use in cowing their visitors and gain massive support from their fans, Musa insists Nigeria will win.

Musa admitted he hopes to get revenge when the Eagles visit Jo’Burg, as he was in the side that lost 2-0 to South Africa in Uyo in June 2017.

The ex-Kano Pillars, VV Venlo of Holland, CSKA Moscow of Russia and Leicester City of England star, who played then as a 59th minute replacement for Alex Iwobi, said there is no pressure on Nigeria.

Musa stressed: ”South Africa are under pressure not Nigeria, so I think next month we are going there even for a point.

”We remember what they did to us in Uyo, we are going there for revenge. We don’t have to lose, if we are not getting a win, let’s go for a draw.

”I think the major strength in the Super Eagles team is that most of the players are young and everybody is ready to play no matter how many minutes the coach gives to you.

”There was a little tiredness in the team against Libya, it is not that easy to play in three days. The important thing is the three points.”
