‘We want to be African champions again’ – Musa, Omeruo declares ahead of final clash

Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa and defender, Kenneth Omeruo, have expressed their desire to win the Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, title again.

Musa and Omeruo were in the Super Eagles squad that last won the AFCON title in 2013.

They are now looking to become the first Nigerians to win the competition twice.

“It is a feeling you can’t always properly describe. Winning the AFCON and touching the trophy is an unforgettable experience.

“Omeruo and myself experienced that when we won in South Africa. But I want another one and he also wants another one. The good feeling and experience must be double double,” Musa told thenff.com.

Omeruo added, “We want that special feeling again – the feeling of being a champion of Africa.

“We have not gone this far to throw it away now. We have thrown everything into the six matches we have played here. We will give more than 100 per cent against the Ivorians on Sunday.”

Sunday’s final will hold at the Alassanne Quattara Stadium, Ebimpe, Abidjan.
