We won’t underrate Liberia – Captain Ahmed Musa

Super Eagles Captain Ahmed Musa said they can’t afford to underrate Liberia as both side clash in the match day five of FIFA World Cup qualifiers group phase.

The Gernot Rohr tutored side will be the guest of the Liberians in Morroco on Saturday — with three points up for grabs.

Nigeria is the favorite to pick the sole ticket in the Group and victory over Lone Stars will further strengthen their position, ahead of last Group game against Cape Verde in Lagos.

Speaking ahead of the Saturday’s clash, Musa said: ” We don’t have to underrate any opponent. We saw the video of their games against Cape Verde, they were unlucky to lose both games. Even the game we played in Lagos they did well.

“We can’t say because it’s Liberia then underrate them. They have wonderful players and it’s going to be tough.”

Nigeria is currently leading Group C with nine points with three wins from four games, while Liberia is rooted at the bottom with zero win from same number of matches.
