Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa speaks on retiring from international duties

Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has finally cleared the air on the speculation that he has retired from the national team.

Musa was part of the silver medal winning Super Eagles team to the 2024 AFCON tournament but didn’t lace his boot for one second.

The ex-CSKA Moscow winger 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 explained: “I only took a little break from the national team.

“But I didn’t exit the team.”

However, speculations are rife that Musa could sign for local league side Kano Pillars ahead of next season.
