Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has dropped an emotional message to Nigerians following a 2-0 win over Cameroon in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, on Saturday night.
Nigeria defeated Cameroon 2-0 in their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations Round of 16 clash on Saturday.
Ademola Lookman scored twice in each half to hand Nigeria a famous win over the Indomitable Lions.
Victor Osimhen broke free and laid off a pass to Lookman, who saw his weak finish trickle pass the line to give the three times African champions their first goal.
The Atalanta forward added the second later on in the game as Cameroon looked for the equaliser.
“Celebrating the Super Eagles’ journey to the AFCON quarter-finals – a testament to the power of unity on the football field. This picture shows the genuine happiness we all feel,” Musa wrote on X.
“In the beautiful game, we stand united, transcending tribe and religion. Let this victory be a reminder that our strength lies in coming together.
“Amidst the challenges our nation faces, let’s use the spirit of football to bridge divides and foster harmony.
“It’s time to kick out the negativity, end the unnecessary killings, rivalry, and embrace the love that sports bring.
“Join hands for peace, goals, and a brighter future.”
