Musa confirmed as Eagle's skipper

Coach Sunday Oliseh has confirmed Ahmed Musa as the Eagles’ new captain, taking over from Vincent Enyeama  who retired from international football on Thursday. The 22-year-old who made his international debut against Madagascar on August 5, 2010 will be assisted by Ogenyi Onazi who played his first game for the senior national in 2012 against Liberia. Defender Kenneth Omeruo will serve as 2nd assistant captain and will wear the captain’s armband in the absence of Musa and Onazi. Celtic’s Efe Ambrose is the team’s spokesman. I have a feeling Mikel excused himself from all these captaincy brouhaha as he declined from taking the arm band as Musa was substituted and was leaving the pitch against Congo. Mikel, a Champions League and Europa Cup winner with Chelsea joined the Super Eagles in 2006 (four years before Musa who is said to have made his debut in 2010) and has the pedigree to lead the Super Eagles now but well the coach knows better. All Nigerians want is unity of purpose in that Super Eagles camp.
