Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has said Nigeria will defeat Benin Republic in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Naija News reports that the Super Eagles will take on Benin in Uyo on Wednesday.
Ahmed Musa missed Nigeria’s last two friendly matches against Ukraine and Brazil due to injury.
Speaking to newsmen at the Super Eagles’ training camp, Musa said he was delighted to be back as he hopes to feature for the 2019 AFCON bronze winners against the Squirrels.
He said: “I’m very happy to be back from injury. Over 2 months now, I’ve not played football but thank God, finally, I’m back, so I’m happy.
“Any time any minute the coach wants me to play, I’m ready and ready to go.
“As you can see, we don’t have much time with the team, we’ve just had our first training session with the players.
“Tomorrow we will have the team together. So I know it’s a very difficult game but we know the task ahead of us, so we will have to do our best to win the first game (against Benin).”
