Ahmed Musa, the Super Eagles captain, and Bright Osayi-Samuel, the defender, both took hits during practice and were sidelined for Friday’s elimination round match against the Black Antelopes.

A thigh injury sustained during training this week has prevented Musa, who is not expected to play in this year’s AFCON, from working out with the rest of the Super Eagles team, according to Score Nigeria.

Meanwhile, following Nigeria’s 1-0 victory against Angola in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinal, the captain of the Super Eagles asked all Nigerians, regardless of tribe or religion, to keep exhibiting the real spirit of oneness. The player, on his official X (formerly Twitter) stated:

Despite our diverse tribes and religions, football unites us all. The songs, images, and videos flooding social media reflect our shared passion.

Let’s carry this unity forward—together, we can achieve anything we set our minds to! #UnityInFootball #SuperEagle,sFans #OneNation #TogetherWeAchieve.”
