Super Eagles winger Ahmed Musa say Nigerians should expect a much-improved National team by the time they take on Egypt in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier next year.


Nigeria kicked off their 2017 AFCON campaign on a winning note defeating Chad 2-0 under former coach Stephen Keshi. But were held to a goalless draw away to Tanzania in Dar es Salaam.

It was coach Sunday Oliseh’s first match in charge of the team, although they defeated Niger Republic 2-0 in a friendly match, where Musa converted from the penalty spot to open scoring for the Eagles.

“I am very happy that we beat Niger Republic and played better than we did against Tanzania. Though it was a friendly, I am sure it served the purpose of getting us to play better as a team.

“Nigerians should therefore expect to see a better Eagles by the time we play against Egypt in our next Nations Cup qualifiers next year. We are on track and improving as a team,” Musa concluded.
