Nigeria and CSKA Moscow of Russia dashing winger, Ahmed Musa, has said that the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Congo in November will determine the fate of Nigeria. The dashing forward explained that winning at the Stade Municipal in Pointe-Noire on November 15 will rekindle hope of Nigeria’s Super Eagles defending their title next year.
The former Kano Pillars forward is happy that the Super Eagles have finally got themselves back in track to qualify for next year’s AFCON after an unimpressive start in the qualifiers.
“It is good we have shown that we are still in it after the kind of start to the qualification, which is unfortunate. As African champions it will be very bad if we fail to qualify. That is why the game against Congo is a very important one that we must win. Once we win that, then our place at the Nations Cup will almost be guaranteed. But it won’t be easy as we think because every team in our group also wants to play at the Nations Cup too.
“But the good thing is that we have finally won a game in the qualifiers, and that is good for the confidence of the team. We will continue to work hard so that we can qualify, and we will take each game as they come,” he said.
The former Nigeria goal king scored twice as the Super Eagles defeated Sudan in Abuja last Wednesday to stand any chance of qualifying for next year AFCON.
