Ahmed Musa, who is currently the skipper of the Nigeria national team was said to have played a total of 100 games for the national team by the Nigerian Football Federation [NFF].
However, after a review from the Federation Internationale de Football Association, FIFA, it was made known that the versatile Nigerian skipper only has 98 caps for his country and not 100 as earlier stated by NFF.
So, in a bid to correct the incorrect analysis by NFF, a statement was released which was conveyed by different news outlets, and said FIFA was right in it counting that currently insists that Ahmed Musa only has 98 caps for Nigeria.
However, it was made known in the statement that if Ahmed Musa would feature in the home and away matches against Central African Republic next month, then will his 100 caps be completed, and appropriate celebration/appreciation would follow.
FIFA was crystal clear as they analyzed Ahmed Musa’s cap for the national team, stating that his appearances in the 3-0 defeat to The Sparrow Hawks of Togo in June, 2017, and the FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Algeria in November, 2018, did not count.
