Ahmed Musa to captain Super Eagles

Ahmed Musa has been lined up to be the next captain of Nigeria when Vincent Enyeama is stripped of the captaincy.

Lille goalkeeper Enyeama is expected to be dropped as the country’s skipper after his recent act of indiscipline when on national team duty.

The CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa led the Super Eagles when they faced South Africa in a friendly earlier this year.

The former Flying Eagles star made his international debut against Madagascar in 2011 in Calabar and he has half a century of caps now.

A top official informed that besides his seniority in the national team, his comportment on and off the pitch has been exemplary.

At only 22, he will be one of the youngest players ever to lead the country’s team.

The jet-heeled winger or forward featured at the 2013 AFCON which Nigeria won in South Africa and scored twice against Argentina at last year’s World Cup in Brazil.
