Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has charged the five African representatives at the 2022 World Cup to strive to create history by going all the way in Qatar and if possible winning the trophy for the continent. Senegal, Ghana, Morocco, Cameroon, and Tunisia are Africa’s five representatives at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Cameroon (at Italia 90), Senegal at Korea/Japan 2002, and Ghana at South Africa 2010, are the only three African teams that have reached the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup. Speaking after he paid a courtesy visit to the newly elected president of the Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Ibrahim Musa Gusau in his office in Abuja,
Musa rued the absence of Nigeria from the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup and affirmed his belief that an African nation can win the World Cup.

I don’t have any favorite country to win the 2022 World Cup, but I will be very happy if an African nation goes all the way to win it. I would also not predict which country will win the World Cup so long as it is an African team.

“If Nigeria had qualified for the World Cup, we would also be contesting for the title. Since we are not there, I have adopted the five African representatives as my teams and I would be praying and rooting for them to do the black continent proud.

“My message to the five African countries is to go to Qatar and be fearless. They should go there believing they can win the World Cup like every other country. They should go and create history for themselves and their countries, ” Musa stated. On the purpose of his visit to the NFF, Nigeria’s most capped player said it was a friendly visit to welcome the newly elected president of the NFF and plot a way forward for Nigerian football.
