Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia attacker, Ahmed Musa has confessed that he is burning with anxiety to step out with the Super Eagles against Libya, as footballllive.ng reports that he cannot wait to play the match.
Nigeria are billed to host The Mediterranean Knights on Saturday evening at Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo and, with just above 24 hours to go before kick-off, Musa said he wants to get it on.
The former CSKA Moscow of Russia and Leicester City of England fleet-footed attacker is set to captain Nigeria once again, in the absence of regular skipper, John Mikel Obi, and Musa says it is another chance to make his mark for the country.
Musa admitted Saturday’s game would be very decisive in Nigeria’s chances of qualifying for next year’s AFCON in Cameroon, but added that he and his national team mates are not under any pressure at all to win.
Rather than worry about the game, or even the reverse fixture that comes up three days later in Sfax, Tunisia, Musa stressed that they are all staying focused on the task at hand and believes they will succeed.
“We are ready to go all out against Libya. In fact, I can’t just wait to take on these Libyans. I am eager to play and get it over with.
“Thank God, me and my colleagues are not under any form of pressure. We are relaxed but ready.
“We will not talk about the second leg until we play this one and, by the grace of God, we shall win,” Musa declared emphatically.
