Below are pictures showing Super Eagles player, Ahmed Musa getting mobbed by excited fans when he went to the National Mosque in Abuja to observe the Juma’ah Prayers.
Fans gathered around him as they appreciated his effort at the Russia 2018 world cup in which he scored two brilliant goals against Iceland.
Report has it that the Super Eagles players have been leaving their Essentuki camp base in Russia in trickles following Tuesday’s exit from the 2018 FIFA World Cup after 1-2 loss to Argentina.
Ademola Olajire, the Director of Communications of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), said that most of the players have left Russia for their respective bases.
“Instead of returning to Nigeria, the Super Eagles players have been returning to their respective bases one after the other, where they have since reunited with their families,’’ he said.
Some of the players who have had an early exit from the camp include team captain Mike Obi, Odion Ighalo, Victor Moses, Kelechi Iheanacho, Leon Balogun, Alex Iwobi, Kenneth Omeruo and Tyronne Ebuehi.
Olajire, however, said those remaining in the team’s camp include Daniel Akpeyi, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Francis Uzoho, John Ogu, Chidozie Awaziem, Oghenekaro Etebo and Simeon Nwankwo.
