Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, will receive the sum of N10million from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), for winning his 100th cap for the country. This was confirmed by NFF president, Amaju Pinnick.
Musa achieved the milestone during the World Cup qualifier against Cape Verde on Tuesday. The former Leicester City winger started the game, which the Eagles went on to win 2-1 in Mindelo.
Following the win at the Estádio Municipal Adérito Sena in Mindelo, Pinnick said: “The NFF will give Ahmed Musa N10 million for reaching the 100 caps.
“We will sustain this gesture and honour our players that hit 100 games henceforth.”
Musa made his debut for Nigeria at the age of 17 in August 2010.
He came on to replace John Mikel Obi in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar. Musa becomes the third player to reach 100 caps for Nigeria after Joseph Yobo and Vincent Enyeama.
