Ahmed Musa New Super Eagles Role Redefined

Undoubtedly one of the most committed and patriotic players in Nigeria footballing history with outstanding passion, top-notch humility and unmatched dedication every time when called to action in the traditional green and white of Nigeria.
Ahmed Musa is currently the most experienced active Super Eagles player with two Africa Cup of Nations tournament appearances associated by two precious medals in the form of Gold and Bronze while his consecutive spectacular individual FIFA World Cup show in 2014 and 2018 remain unequal in the ripe records of the African soccer giants.
The emergence of scientific and tricky foot-warriors in Villarreal's Samuel Chukwueze and French Ligue 1 waist-twister Samuel Kalu has simplified the national team not forgetting the sudden evacuation and retirement of the likes of Victor Moses and Odion Ighalo has changed the landscape with transition in full effect.
Experience is essential and can't be bought in the Jankara market but some leaves must be borrowed from the past with Kanu Nwankwo, Joseph Yobo and of recent John Obi Mikel leading from the sideline because of the general team wellness and interest even to tournaments.

With 88 international feathers to his cap, Ahmed Musa has been decent with 15 goals when it matter most but the unconvincing display in Egypt for a front-man can be accurately judged and evaluated by statistics with barrenness part of it.
Due to injury, Samuel Kalu seems to have claimed the left side of the Super Eagles attack fully in reference to his electrifying performances in the 2-2 draw against Ukraine in September and solo goal few days ago in a 2-1 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier played at the Nest of Champions in Uyo.

A lot of people have complained about Coach Gernot Rohr's striking alternative to Victor Osimhen which is the rather sluggish Paul Onuachu but in order to maintain same pace and team shape, 27-year-old Musa can be the accurate and proper replica for the young and burdened Osimhen as the arrowhead for the team.

The new style must be properly maintained with proper playing personnel and Captain Ahmed Musa is equal to the task.
