Ahmed Musa Can Have Up To 130 Caps For Nigeria, He Is A Top Player – Vincent Enyeama
Former goalkeeper and captain of the senior national team of Nigeria Vincent Enyeama has tipped Ahmed Musa to smash his record of the highest amount of caps for the Super Eagles.
Musa thought he has reached a 100 caps but a statement by FIFA said he is on 98 caps as two of the games counted for him by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) were cancelled.
It means Musa who now plays in Turkey for Fatih Karagümrük will likely reach that total if selected to play in the back to back 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Central Africa Republic next month.
Enyeama who holds the record of most caps which stands at 104 has backed the 28 year old to surpass his tally and set a new record, terming him as a top player who is dedicated to the senior national team of Nigeria.
“I always knew he would get to hundred caps,” Enyeama told ESPN. “I [know he will] break that record because he has been consistent, and he has been one of the few Nigerians that have always showed up to play in the team whenever he has been called up.”
“If he is in good health, I think Musa can get up to 130 caps. He is doing well, he is the captain of the team. With the time he has, he can still get up to 40 more games for the country, comfortably.
“Musa is a top player. I want him to make 130-140 easy. Musa can comfortably play two Afcons and that is 12 games already. Then another set of qualifiers. And another World Cup to crown it off. He can achieve it without any push.”
