Ahmed Musa To Receive ₦10 Million From NFF For Reaching 100 Caps
Ahmed Musa, the captain of the Super Eagles, will receive N10 million from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for winning his 100th cap for the country.
Amaju Pinnick, the president of the NFF, confirmed this.
Musa reached the milestone during Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier against Cape Verde.
The former Leicester City winger started the game in Mindelo, which the Eagles won 2-1.
Following the victory at Mindelo’s Estádio Municipal Adérito Sena, Pinnick stated, “The NFF will give Ahmed Musa N10 million for reaching 100 caps.”
“We will sustain this gesture and honour our players that hit 100 games henceforth.”
Musa made his Nigeria debut in August 2010 at the age of 17.
In an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar, he came on in place of John Mikel Obi.
Musa joins Joseph Yobo and Vincent Enyeama as the third Nigerian to reach 100 caps.
