2019 AFCON: Ahmed Musa Insists On Victory Over South Africa
The stand-in Captain of the Super Eagles, Ahmed Musa says the team is eyeing an outright win over their South African counterparts on Saturday and not just a draw as been suggested in some quarters.
Musa told thenff.com that the Super Eagles are not thinking of simply gaining a point from the encounter.
“Our determination is to win and pick our ticket to the AFCON ahead of the final match day next year. South Africa came to Nigeria to beat us and we are here to return the compliment.
“We will not be playing for a draw. We won in Seychelles and against Libya in Tunisia and we are here to win as well.”
Musa and team mates will have a feel of the turf of the FNB Stadium (nicknamed Soccercity) from 3pm on Friday.
He admits that Saturday’s encounter would not be for the faint-heart.
Nigeria has not beaten South Africa at senior men level in the last four encounters between both nations, though it was in South Africa that Nigeria won her third Africa Cup of Nations title in February 2013.
