Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia attacker, Ahmed Musa has given words of thanks to all Nigerian football fans and lovers of the game that lent support to the Super Eagles, as he believes they backing helped the squad reach this year’s Africa Cup of Nations semi-final in Egypt.
Although the Eagles eventually lost 2-01 to Algeria in Sunday’s last-four fixture at Cairo International Stadium, Musa, who was stand-in captain for the match, said they would have fallen flat earlier in the course of the championship, which he says is never an easy venture.
Megasportsarena.com reports that the former Kano Pillars, VVV Venlo of Holland, CSKA Moscow of Russia and Leicester City of England star then praised his Eagles’ teammates for what he described as their great efforts in all their matches.
He took to social media to convey his thoughts and appreciation, with a view that the experience gained at Egypt 2019 will come in handy for the Eagles in years to come, while also assuring that the players will continue fighting hard any time they are called upon by the country.
Musa posted: “This is to say a massive thank you to all our supporters & well wishers during this journey.
“Not the result we wanted but we gave it our best shot. We keep fighting till the end. Proud of you mates #NAIJA.”
