Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has spoken of his pride at making his 100th appearance.
Musa achieved the milestone during Nigeria’s 2-0 win over the Central African Republic on Sunday.
The 28-year-old becomes only the third centurion in the senior national team, one short of Joseph Yobo and Vincent Enyeama, who both made 101 appearances each.
Musa thought he had reached the 100th mark against Cape Verde in September.
However, FIFA said his appearances against Togo in June 2017 and Algeria in November 2017 did not count.
According to FIFA, the friendly against the Hawks was not recognised by the world football governing body, while the World Cup qualifier against the Desert Foxes was cancelled as Nigeria fielded an ineligible player.
After today’s game against CAR, Musa posted on Instagram: “Wow! What can I say? I wouldn’t have been able to achieve this without the support of my family, teammates, officials, and my fans.
“To crown it all, important three points in our game. Thank you so much, I don’t take any of this for granted. We will continue to make history and secure wins.”
