In a video shared on TikTok, the former Leicester City forward is seen fiercely competing with his friends, which includes other professional footballers.

Musa is expected to spend some few more weeks in Nigeria before leaving for Turkey to begin pre-season with Sivasspor.

The 30-year-old led the Super Eagles to secure qualification to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations after beating Sierra Leone in Monrovia last month despite being an unused substitute.

Napoli's red-hot striker Victor Osimhen netted a brace with Kelechi Ihenacho scoring a last gasp winner for the Super Eagles against a stubborn Sierra Leone side.

Nigeria will next face Sao Tome and Principe in the final round of AFCON qualifiers.

He continued with his philanthropic work towards children as he distributed school bags and books to them.
