Abuja ) Precise Post) – Ahmed Musa has been a loyal servant to the Nigeria football and with his eminent contribution to the growth of football, and over a decade of supporting the growth of Nigeria football and with the fact that his retirement is eminent. It is imperative that Ahmed is given the chance to show what he can do by bringing in wealth his of experience in big games to gear especially now that Super Eagles have reached the final phrase of the world cup qualifier.
Ahmed Musa space and his experience is very is very fundamental in the grand form of things. Ahmed Musa might not be spacy as he use to be, but his experience cannot be over emphasized. Ahmed Musa has his temperament and a big game experience to be able to help Nigeria out in tough situations like this, like he has always do.
We cannot easily forget how he helped Nigeria two goals in Brazil against Argentina even if we lost that match 3:2 and another excellent performance in Russia against Iceland that earn us three points. He has always been a big game player for Nigeria. There are so many examples to pick from.
Considering the fact that he is about to retire the motivation for him to do better or do well for Nigeria will be on a constant high.
Ahmed is a level headed player willing to sacrifice for the team and as such he has tried as much as he can even though not on the pitch to help galvanize the boys to victory. His outside the pitch influence on the team cannot be under estimated and he has also done alot for the team in liasing with them to discuss the issues relating to their rumeration with NFF. This has put him in a very good stem with the rest of the squad.
Ahmed Musa is someone if given the chance even if it is for 10-15 mins to the end of the game could bring in his wealth of experience to gear, by reading the game and looking at areas that could help the Super Eagles to be able to gain one against Ghana.
I believe at this juncture it is important that the coaches put Ahmed Musa in their plans for the second leg game against the black starts of Ghana. If this is done I believe that Nigerians will be able to take a step into Qatar 2022.
I am not saying Ahmed Musa is the only one to do that. But I believe with his experience and his leadership qualities and abilities to read games and turn it big. I believe he will be a big and good asset for Nigeria at this particular point in time. So lets give him the chance to do more before his retirement.
