Nigeria vs Algeria: Ahmed Musa breaks Mikel Obi’s record during 1-0 defeat

Ahmed Musa has now surpassed John Obi Mikel as the third most capped Nigerian player, having featured in the international friendly against Algeria on Friday.

The 27-year-old came off the bench to replace Samuel Chukwueze in the 75th minute of the game.

However, Musa was unable to prevent the Super Eagles from losing 1-0 to the reigning African champions.

But he got his 92nd cap for the country.

Musa went into the game on 91 caps, level with the former captain, Mikel Obi, who quit international football after the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations

The Al-Nassr forward is now only behind Joseph Yobo and Vincent Enyeama for number of appearances.

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