Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has stated that the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) will be his final appearance for Nigeria.

This was said by the former Leicester City forward during a pre-match press conference on Monday, ahead of the group D opener against Egypt on Tuesday.

Musa, the most capped player in the Nigerian national team, has stated that he has urged the team to go all out in the 33rd edition of the AFCON as a “parting gift for me.”

“I believe this will be my last AFCON,” Musa stated.

“I’ve told the boys that this is the only present you can give me because this is my final AFCON. And the lads informed me that they are prepared.”

“My first AFCON was in South Africa in 2013 and we ended up winning it. And my second appearance was in Egypt and we won the bronze.”

Musa has 16 goals for Nigeria in his twelve years as a part of the senior national squad.

After scoring twice against Argentina in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Musa became the first Nigerian to score more than once in a FIFA World Cup match.

Musa is also the first Nigerian to score in two FIFA World Cup tournaments, having scored twice against Iceland in the 2018 FIFA World Cup group stage.
