2021 AFCON qualifier: We have what it takes to beat Lesotho - Ahmed Musa

Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa says Nigeria has what it takes to beat Lesotho and stay top of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier Group L.

Nigeria beat Benin 2-1 on Wednesday to kick off their qualifier journey on a winning note.

Up next is the Matchday two fixture against Lesotho on Sunday, and Musa knows the importance of winning the game.

Speaking to journalists before the team left the country for Maseru, Musa, said, “Lesotho is not one of the biggest names in world football, but we won’t take them for granted. They will enjoy the support of their home fans and be pumped up to beat us.

“We have what it takes to beat them and will go all out to maintain the top position in the group.”

Sunday’s encounter will kick off at 6 pm Lesotho time (5 pm in Nigeria).
