The Nigerian Football Association (NFF) announced that Ahmed Musa will receive a cash prize of N10 million after his 100th game with the Super Eagles on Tuesday evening in Cape Verde.
Senior officials announced that this gesture will be extended to other players who successful achieve this height in their respective career.
However, this is happening as the world football association FIFA recorded the international appearances of the Super Eagles captain at 98 and not at 100 unqualified players, Sheet Abdullahi.
The friendly between Nigeria and Togo in June 2017, in which Ahmed Musa played, was also not taken into account, as more substitutions were made than allowed in the game.
Coach Gernot Roar made nine changes, three more than allowed, suggesting Ahmed Musa is still two games away from being called a centurion, according to the football association. according to sportsconnect.com.ng
