Super Eagles skipper, Ahmed Musa, has gifted his teammates the sum of five million naira following their 2-1 win against Cape Verde on Tuesday, in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
The money shared was taken from the 10 million naira Ahmed Musa was gifted for reaching 100 caps with the country’s senior national team.
Musa who was surrounded by his teammates, team officials and president of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, said in a short video on NFF TV, “From the 10 million, I’m giving back five million to the team”.
