Ahmed Musa Named New Captain of Super Eagles

CSKA Moscow midfielder, Ahmed Musa has been named the new captain of the Super Eagles.

Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh made the announcement on Tuesday in a build-up to his team’s upcoming double header against DR Congo and Cameroon in Belgium.

Musa made his debut for Nigeria against Madagascar in Calabar in 2011 and he first captained the team in a friendly against South Africa in March.

Reports emanating from Super Eagles’ camp in Belgium said Enyeama, who only arrived on Monday in the Belgium camp of the Eagles, was initially kicked out of the team’s hotel for supposedly questioning the rationale behind Oliseh sticking with Ahmed Musa as Eagles’ captain despite the return of more senior players like John Obi Mikel.

Oliseh was reportedly irked by the veteran’s actions and ordered that the Lille goalkeeper leave the team’s camp in Belgium.

Speaking through its official Twitter handle, the NFF confirmed that there was a minor ‘misunderstanding’ between the pair but also stated that the matter has been resolved and Enyeama was allowed to stay back in camp.

“It’s true that there was a little misunderstanding in the camp of @NGSuperEagles, but the matter has been resolved.” @nff tweeted.

Enyeama is yet to feature for Nigeria under Oliseh; he missed Super Eagles’ Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania last month following the death of his mother.

With the current turn of events, it is likely that the fans’ favourite may have played his last game for Nigeria.
