Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa has said the team must not lose a game in the qualification series if they are to make the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

Nigeria are third in the Group E standing for the race to Cameroon having played two games and gathered three points.

They had lost 2-0 to South Africa in June 2017, leaving them one point behind the Bafana Bafana and group leaders Libya.

Having missed out of the last two editions of the competition, Musa urged the team to go all out without losing a match in the qualification battle.

“Our target is to win at least three of our four remaining matches and ensure we do not lose any more game after the loss to South Africa in Uyo,” the former Leicester City man said.

“We have to revenge that defeat against South Africa and beat Seychelles again, then get the upper hand in the two legs with Libya.”

According to him, “We were not at our best against Seychelles in Victoria, but we still managed to win 3-0.

“The pitch was bad and the host team played more defensively without a particular pattern.

“We played to get the three points and we could have scored a lot of goals but three goals was not a bad result.”

Nigeria will take on Libya in their next game on October 10 in Kaduna State.
