Super Eagles stand-in captain, Ahmed Musa, has redeemed his promise to the U-23 side following their astonishing 4-0 win over Libya on Monday evening.
The Dream Team were trailing the Libyans 2-0 from the first leg last week and needed a resounding win to qualify.
To encourage the lads ahead of the daunting task, Musa promised to pay N1million per goal scored.
Well…Victor Osimhen grabbed a hat-trick and Chidozie Okereke added a fourth as the U-23 Eagles marched to victory.
Former Media Officer of the senior Eagles, Colin Udoh, has confirmed that the former Leicester City winger has sent the money.
“JUST IN. @NGSuperEagles captain @Ahmedmusa718 has fulfilled his promise of a million naira for every goal scored by the U23 Eagles.
“He has sent N4 Million to the team for the 4-0 win over Libya this evening in Asaba #AfconU23Q #Team9jaStrong,” Udoh tweeted.
Nice move, Musa!
Meanwhile, Nigeria, led by former Rangers coach Imama Amakapabo, have booked a slot for the U23 Afcon to be held in Egypt later this year.
