Super Eagles’ on-field skipper, Ahmed Musa has thanked the Egyptian fans for the support they are giving his team and hopes the support will also be given in the team’s remaining two matches.

According to Egyptian publication, Kingfut, Musa made the coments while appreciating the fans for their support during Nigeria’s 2-1 win over South Africa at the quarterfinals of the Africa Cup of Nations.

 “The win is important. We knew it was not going to be easy,” Musa said.

“All we had in our mind was winning the game and we are glad to do that at the end of the day.

“We expected that we would win, but we have to keep our head calm,” he added.

“We scored the first goal but they equalized. We knew the goal would eventually come and had to be patient. Finally, it came in the 90th minute.”

“They should keep supporting us. It’s good that Egyptian fans came out to support us. We want to say thank you to them for everything,” he concluded.

Nigeria will now face favorites Algeria in the semi-finals on July 14 at 9pm local time in the Cairo International Stadium.
