Ahmed Musa is confident that Nigeria’s Super Eagles will go all out to tackle Ghana’s Black Stars in the World Cup play-off contest.

Musa, who has participated in two world cup campaigns for the Super Eagles, said the competition is the most valuable football event any players won’t afford to miss.

“This is the best tournament as a player you will want to play, so we know the game is going to be very tough. At the end of 95 minutes, we are going to do all our best to make Nigerians proud.”

But the Super Eagles failed to keep their promise during the last Nations Cup when they lost out to Tunisia in the Round of 16 but Musa assured that the team won’t dash the hopes of Nigerians as they seek a seventh World Cup ticket.

“Like we promised that we’re going to AFCON but there was a setback. So, what we are going to give to the fans to make them happy is to qualify for the World Cup. We will do all in our best to make Nigerians proud,” he added.

Musa will look to win his 103rd cap for the national team since he made his debut in 2010 under Austin Eguavoen.

He has scored 16 goals.
