The seasoned veterans are vying to become the first Nigerians ever to win the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) title twice as they prepare to lead their team in the final against Cote d’Ivoire on Sunday, Footballrover reports.

Musa and Omeruo both played for the victorious Super Eagles team that won the 2013 AFCON championship, which was hosted by South Africa.

Now, a decade later, they have the chance to repeat that feat in the cauldron of the Alssanne Ouattara Stadium in Ebimpe, Abidjan.

A victory in the final would see the duo join an exclusive club of African football legends.

While Nigeria has produced an abundance of talented players, none have managed to lift the AFCON trophy twice.

Recall that in 2000, Cameroon denied Nigerian stars who were on the verge of greatness, such Emmanuel Amuneke, Austin Okocha, and Finidi George.

This year’s final holds even more significance for Omeruo, who has been a rock at the heart of the Super Eagles defence throughout the tournament, making five appearances.

Captain Musa, on the other hand, is yet to feature in the 2023 edition due to injury.
