After the names of players that will prosecute both games was released on Tuesday, the Social Media was thrown into frenzy.
Some social media users welcomed the inclusion on Musa while others kicked against it.
Here are some reactions on Twitter on the inclusion on Musa to Paul Onuachu who has been firing from all cylinder for Genk in the Belgian league.
Here are reactions by some Twitter users:
Musa should not be playing for the Super Eagles [at least at the moment]. Man has been without a club for about 5 months now. https://t.co/cNcAhDzNqP

Simply put: Ahmed Musa is the oldest playing personal and one of the oldest non-playing personal in the Super Eagles. You can't just throw that away. If it makes you feel better, he most likely won't play either of those games. But he is NEEDED in that camp.

This is a foolish comment, expected from gullible people like you.
How can you think that for a player who has played for Nigeria at U20, U23, CHAN & Super Eagles is been invited because of tribe?
He has played under Keshi, Oliseh, Siasia, Rohr & Obuh.
Make una dey think. https://t.co/x6KS1mBHd3

That super eagles team list is trash
1. Shehu Abdullahi and Semi Ajayi both added to the midfield so they can make the cut since they can't bench anyone on the defense.
2. Ahmed Musa who currently has no club makes the list while Onuachu and Simi can't make the list.

Paul Onuachu have scored 25goals in 29 League games for GENK making him the most inform Nigeria player in the world while Musa without a club for months gets invited to play just 2games??
Rohr is as confused as those in charge of football in Nigeria. Joke of a coach. Nonsense. https://t.co/tNFH9iYQPU

Rohr is actually setting a bad precedent with the inclusion of Musa who hasn’t played in 5 months and putting Nigeria hottest striker in Europe, Paul Onuachu on standby.
His choice tho.
