Ahmed Musa has said he expects the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon to be his last and is happy the showpiece is being held there.

The national team captain who was asked for his take on the competition in Cameroon, spoke on Monday at a World Press Conference ahead of the Group D opening game against Egypt.

“I think this is my last AFCON,” the former Al Nassr poser boy replied when quizzed on his future plans.

He continued: “I have spoken to the boys that this is the only gift you can give to me because this is my last AFCON. And the boys told me that they are ready.

“My first AFCON was in South Africa in 2013 and we ended up winning it. And my second appearance was in Egypt and we won the bronze.”

Nigeria will face Egypt on Tuesday. Kickoff is 5pm.
