Super Eagles Captain Ahmed Musa has revealed that the ongoing 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon will be his last for Nigeria.
The 28-year-old forward said this on Monday at a pre-match conference ahead of their group D opening game against Egypt on Tuesday.
Musa, who is the Nigerian national team’s most-capped player, also said he has charged the team to win the 33rd edition of the AFCON as a “parting gift for me”.
“I think this is my last AFCON in Shaa Allah,” Musa said.
“I have spoken to the boys that this is the only gift you can give to me. Because this is my last AFCON. And the boys told me that they are ready.
“My first AFCON was in South Africa in 2013 and we ended winning it. And my second appearance was in Egypt and we won the bronze.”
The former Leicester City forward has scored 16 goals in his twelve years of sojourn in the national team.
