Ahmed Musa

Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa has said that the team is traveling to Cameroon for the Africa Cup of Nation to win the competition.

The Eagles who are expected to arrive in Garuoa, Cameroon on Wednesday, are drawn in Group D with seven-time winners Egypt, Guinea- Bissau and Sudan.

Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday in Abuja, Ahmed Musa said the team remains positive and going to come back with the trophy eventually.

“For me I think we are ready because we have played lots of matches together in the past. Like I said, we are 100 per cent ready. We are not going to Cameroon to see the beauty of the country but to win.

“I remember during the qualifiers when we sealed qualification, we said we are not just going to the AFCON to complete the numbers but we are going to come back with the trophy,” stressed Musa.

The forward also watered down threats of in-form Egyptian forward, Mohammed Salah noting that the Super Eagles also have players the Egyptians need to worry about.

“Everyone is talking about Salah but if you look at our team, we also have lots of players they (Egyptians) should be worried about.

“So we don’t have to think about Salah. They have to think about our own players. They talk about Salah but we have players like Samuel Chukwueze and others on the wings who are equally dangerous, so that’s football.”
