AFCON 2019: We are focused on beating Guinea - Ahmed Musa

Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa says the team has shifted attention from their 1-0 victory against Burundi in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Musa admitted that the Super Eagles must be at their best to beat Guinea and qualify for the AFCON 2019 Round of 16.

“We have a win already and all our attention will be on the next game and we have to be at our best,” Musa told Goal.

“Against Burundi, we were able to pick a lesson or two and they will be useful against Guinea.

“There are no easy teams in Africa but we hope to get a positive result to see us through to the next round of the championship.

Odion Ighalo’s strike was all Nigeria needed to see off hard-fighting Burundi.

“I must confess that Burundi are a good side and they gave us a very good fight,” Musa continued.

“Many expected us to score a lot of goals against them but the victory was more important for us.

“After 90 minutes we were able to get maximum points, so the number of goals we scored don’t really matter.

“For Burundi, they are a very tough side, they played very well and I hope to see them qualify because they are good.”
