Musa, Rohr Speaks On Substitute Role Following Super Eagles Victory Over Benin

Musa, Rohr Speaks On Substitute Role Following Super Eagles Victory Over Benin    

The “Governor” as he is fondly called only came on in the last five minutes of Nigeria’s 2-1 win over Benin Republic on Wednesday evening at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium.

However, in his post-match conference which Soccernet.ng was a part of, Musa revealed he has no problems with the manager’s selection, saying he is just happy to be back in the team.

The Al-Nassr forward missed Nigeria’s last two games prior to the Benin game due to injuries. When asked whether his case is similar to Mikel who found himself on the bench in the last days of his Super Eagles career, Musa said no, but it is logical for Rohr to start with the same players that played against Brazil and Ukraine.

“Like I said in the pre-match conference, I am just happy to be back in the team. It is normal for the manager to select the players that played against Brazil, Musa said in the postmatch conference.

Echoing what his captain said, Rohr praised Musa’s attitude, saying he is an example for young footballers.

“Let me add to what he said, this man is a good captain-pointing at Musa.” He told me before the game to start the same team that started against Brazil, Rohr added.

Nevertheless, Musa will hope to get more minutes when Nigeria travel to Lesotho to take on the Crocodiles. The Super Eagles lead Group L with three points followed by Lesotho and Serria Leone who both have one point each after they played out a 1-1 draw in the other group encounter.
