Musa during his pet talk to the players urged them to maintain the rich culture of Nigeria football and also make a name for themselves and their families.
“You have to work hard. Listen and obey your coaches if you want to succeed at this stage of your football.
“Sometimes, I regret that I never played for the Golden Eaglets. You have to make use of this opportunity. You are not the best in Nigeria. Many players out there are better than you. The only difference is that you have the opportunity.
“So, you have to work hard. Pray a lot and be determined to make a name for Nigeria and also for yourselves and your families. Do not miss this great opportunity. I was only given five minutes in my debut game for the Super Eagles, but today I am the captain of the team. I never thought I would someday be the captain of the Super Eagles.
“I promise and I assure you that you will be rewarded with N500,000.00 for every goal scored at the U17 AFCON in Algeria next month. Remember to always play as a team. If you are a defender, play with your mates, same for you that is a midfielder. Do not be selfish as a striker.”
The Super Eagles number seven player, who won his 109th cap for the Super Eagles in 1-0 away victory over Guinea Bissau in Bissau on Monday duringthe 2023 AFCON qualifiers, added: “Promise me that you will make Nigerians proud. Football is the only thing that unites our country. Whether you are a Muslim or a Christian does not matter in football. Winning is what Nigerians are looking forward to.
“So, go to Algeria, conquer and give Nigerians joy,” he said.
