Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has stated that his team is completely focused on Tuesday’s FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 playoff match against Ghana’s Black Stars.
He stated that the players are motivated to put up a show worthy of a seventh participation at football’s largest house party since 1994.
He told thenff.com on Sunday: “All the players, including myself, want to go to the World Cup. For me, it is very important because it could be my last World Cup.
“I enjoyed the last two finals that I participated in, Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018. I want to experience it again. Most of the players in the present squad have not been to the World Cup and they desire to be there.
“We all know it won’t be easy. Ghana will come here to do battle but we are ready for whatever they turn up with. I will not say more than that.”
Ghana dominated the game, but Nigeria generated more opportunities in a tense first leg last Friday at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
Both sides failed to score in the 0-0 stalemate.
