Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, is confident of reaching many milestones for the country before retirement, adding that his integration into the Arab culture was made easier due to the large presence of Nigerians in the country.
Musa is the only Nigeria player to have scored two goals at different World Cup to make him the country’s highest goalscorer at the major tournament and the Al Nassr player has set sight on setting more records.
“Since I started my career with the national team, I’ve always broken records. I am now the highest scorer in the history of the World Cup for Nigeria,” Musa said.
“I think with the years I have remaining with the national team, I will reach more records than my former teammates,”
The former Leicester City forward has embraced life in Saudi Arabia and said it wasn’t difficult for him to adapt thanks to the huge Nigerian presence in the kingdom.
“Back in my country (Nigeria), everyone always comes to Saudi, so I know the lifestyle here. So, nobody asks me how I cope or what I do in Saudi because Nigerians are always here.”
The Eagles’ captain has 87 caps for the national team and scored 15 goals in the process. He was part of the team that won the Africa Cup of Nations in 2013.
At just 27 years of age, Musa could equal former Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama’s record of 101 appearances.
