Ahmed Musa overtakes Enyeama, Yobo to become most-capped Super Eagles player

Nigeria captain, Ahmed Musa, now holds the record for most appearances made for the national team.

The 29-year-old has eclipsed Joseph Yobo and Vincent Enyeama.

Musa reached this milestone after coming on to replace Kelechi Iheanacho in the 86th minute of a 2022 World Cup qualifier against Liberia on Saturday.

The winger had equalled Yobo and Enyeama’s record having earned his 101st cap in the 2-0 win over the Central African Republic on October 10.

Musa made his senior debut on August 5, 2010, in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Madagascar.

He scored his first goal for the Super Eagles in an international friendly against Kenya in March 2011 and has played at two AFCON tournaments as well as two FIFA World Cups
