Ahmed Musa has however assured fans that he will be at his best if called on to play although he hasn’t played club football in weeks.

The former CSKA Moscow attacker was at the U20 Goal Project stadium on Monday and was quite vocal about his readiness and determination.

The Super Eagles need just four points to qualify for the tournament and Joseph Yobo has confidently stated that it won’t be an issue as the Super Eagles will go for broke at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium for the home leg on Friday as well as away from home in Cape Town next week Tuesday.

The AFCON 2021 qualifiers will be played behind closed doors as the nation and the rest of the world continue to live with the impact of the Coronavirus.

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has called up Abdullahi Shehu to replace FC Midtjylland midfielder, Frank Onyeka following the latter’s injury over the weekend, Onyeka becomes the second player to pull out from the squad after Moses Simon who was replaced by Genk forward, Paul Onuachu.

The Super Eagles top Group L in the qualifiers following two wins in two against Lesotho and Benin with Sierra Leone lying bottom with one point.
