Super Eagles skipper Ahmed Musa has sent a message to his critics, noting that they will tell their children about him someday.

Musa, 30, has seen a lot of bashing in the last 24 hours after Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro announced the 23-man squad for the AFCON qualifier match against Sierra Leone in Monrovia which included Musa.

Similar to past occurrences, critics of the former Leicester City forward took to Twitter, calling for his name to be dropped.

Musa, however, replied them in an Instagram post on Saturday. He said, “Like me or hate me, a day will come that you will tell your kids a story about Ahmed Musa MON.”

The Super Eagles are top of their qualification group with nine points out of four matches, followed by Guinea Bissau’s Wild Dogs who have seven points. Leone Stars, who gave the Eagles a tough run in Abuja on day 1 of the qualification series before succumbing 2-1, are on five points. Sao Tome and Principe, who play the Super Eagles, on the final day of the series in September, are bottom with only one point.

Nigeria and Sierra Leone clash at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Stadium in Monrovia on Sunday, June 18, as Sierra Leone do not have any stadium in their country approved for international matches.
