The Super Eagles will be looking to go one step better in Cameroon after finishing third in the 2019 edition in Egypt.

Nigeria will come up against Salah, who has been one of the stand-out performers in Europe this season after bagging 23 goals and nine assists across all competitions.

"Everyone is talking about [Mohamed] Salah but if you look at our team, we have lots of players they will be worried about," Musa told the media, as per KingFut.

"So, we don’t have to think about Salah, they’ve to think about our own players.

"They talk about Salah but we have players like Samuel Chukwueze and others on the wings who are very dangerous – so that’s football.

"In each tournament, you will always see new players. I don’t think there is any new player going to AFCON that has not been with us since day one.

"So, we are together, and we know each other but it’s just something little the coach just needs to add into the team.

"For me, I think we’re ready because we have played lots of matches together, and like I said we are 100 percent ready.

"We aren’t going to Cameroon to see the beauty of the country but to win. I remember during the qualifiers when we sealed qualification, we said we aren’t just going to the AFCON we’re going to come back with the trophy."
