Ahmed Musa

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will reward national team captain, Ahmed Musa, with the sum of N10million for winning his 100th cap.

Musa reached the milestone after starting in the Super Eagles‘ 2-1 win over Cape Verde in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

NFF president, Amaju Pinnick, confirmed the 28-year-old will be recognised for the feat.

According to Pinnick, this will also become the new tradition moving forward.

He said: “The NFF will give Ahmed Musa N10 million for reaching the 100 caps.

“We will sustain this gesture and honour our players that hit 100 games henceforth.”

Musa made his debut for Nigeria at the age of 17 in August 2010.

He came on to replace John Mikel Obi in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar.

Musa becomes the third player to reach 100 caps for Nigeria after Joseph Yobo and Vincent Enyeama.
