Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Musa said the Super Eagles will miss the influence of captain John Obi Mikel in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Libya.

He said: “We will definitely miss the captain. We all understand his importance to the team.

“Victor Moses is no longer available for selection due to his retirement from the national team.

“We have players who are capable of filling the void. We certainly missed some players against Seychelles but coped.

“William Troost Ekong missed out of the Seychelles fixture but he is fully back for the Libyan test.

“We haven’t been to the last two editions of the Afcon.

“The players are looking forward to qualifying for the competition.

“We are training ahead of the two games against Libya. There is no point jumping ship. The focus is on the first one on Saturday.”
