“We have to give all what we have in the first game to see what we can have before we come back home,’’ the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner said. “And by the grace of God, we will do all our best to see what we can do over there.” Coach Augustine Eguavoen will be banking on the experience of key stars like Musa who has been to the World Cup on two occasions (2014 and 2018) to help Nigeria defeat the Otto Addo tutored Ghanaian team in Kumasi when hostilities commence on Friday. Apart from the absence of key players like Wilfred Ndidi due to injury, and Maduka Okoye who reported being sick, Nigeria has a full house in their Abuja camp as both African heavyweights jostle for one of the five African World Cup tickets.
