Musa says he is willing to help the team in any way he can but the younger players must be given a chance to show what they have.

“I don’t have to play, I wanted the coach to start the same team that played against Brazil because they played very good,” he said.

“You can see the young players are coming up so we have to give them the chance. Maybe Ahmed Musa is not going to be there anymore, we have to start grooming more players. To me the captain armband is not really a big deal; it is the team that matter.”
