- Sunday Oliseh captained the Super Eagles for several years before he retired in 2002
- The former player has wished present captain a happy birthday
- Oliseh in his heartwarming message trolls Musa on his latest hairstyle
Sunday Oliseh has sent a heartwarming message to present Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa who is celebrating his 28th birthday.
Musa earlier took to social media to celebrate himself as his followers and well wishers sent in their best wishes to him.
The Al Nassr of Saudi Arabia forward wrote:
“On this day many years ago I was born. Grateful to still be standing to celebrate another year. Happy birthday to me."
And while congratulating the 28-year-old on clocking another year, former Super Eagles captain Sunday Oliseh who played for the Nigerian national team between 1993 and 2002 chuckled that at Musa’s hair.
The birthday celebrant is currently wearing dreadlocks, however he is famous for his trademark low cut hairstyle.
“Happy Birthday skippo, many happy returns. But e be like say we need to talk about this your hairstyle oo …lol stay blessed lil bro.”
This is coming barely a day after Musa captained Nigeria to a 1-1 friendly with the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia, a game played in Austria.
Both teams were inseparable after battling for supremacy at the the prestigious Jacques Lemans Hotel Die Zeit in St. Veit, Austria, where the Nigerians lost 1-0 to African champions Algeria four days earlier.
Coach Gernor Rohr made attacking changes to his side that started against Algeria, with Ahmed Musa, Kelechi Iheanacho and Samuel Chukwueze leading the attack against Tunisia.
Kelechi Iheanacho ended his three-year goal drought when he wriggled his way out of the Tunisian defence before slotting past Ben Mustapha in goal to give Nigeria the lead; 1-0.
The North Africans restored parity in style after Kenneth Omeruo was beaten in the danger area before the ball was squared to Mohamed Draeger who found the roof of the net leaving goalkeeper Maduka Okoye hapless in goal and that was how it ended.
However, Legit.ng earlier reported that Victor Anichebe has disclosed plans that he hopes to own a football club in the near future in order to improve black, Asian and minority (BAME) representation at boardroom level within the sport.
Statistics have shown that a lack of ethnic minority representation in positions of power across sports has come to light through the Black Lives Matter movement.
