Musa sure Super Eagles will improve

08 September 2015, 17:05

Port Harcourt - Super Eagles stand-in captain Ahmed Musa says he and his teammates will give their best when they face Les Mena of Niger Republic in today's international friendly.

The game, which comes up at the Adokiye Amasiemaka Stadium in Port Harcourt, comes on the heels of Nigeria's unimpressive 0-0 draw against the Taifa Stars of Tanzania in Dar-es-Salaam in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Already, the draw against Tanzania means the Super Eagles are now two points adrift of the Pharaohs of Egypt, who dismantled Le Sao of Chad 5-1 in Djamena.

But Musa, who will be Nigeria's captain for only the third time, in the absence of Vincent Enyeama, says the players will put in a more impressive performance against the Nigeriens.

"We want to play better in this game and we will give our best to ensure we do that. Maybe we didn't play too well against the Tanzanians, but we will improve.

"It is a new team and we are trying to get used to the philosophies of the coach and sometimes, it takes time to get it working.

"But we the players must be focused and play to instructions on what the coach wants us to do.

"I believe we will play better against Niger because we have spoken to one another and we know we must improve," Musa reckoned.

The game kicks off at 4pm.
