Super Eagles of Nigeria winger, Ahmed Musa shared a video on his Instagram page showing he and his national teammates dancing and singing to Austino Milado’s gyration song.
The Austino Milado’s gyration song titled “Super Eagles Carry Go” is a song dedicated to the senior national team of Nigeria. The theme of the song is centered around the prowess and the exploits of the national team.
Over time, the gyration song and other tracks on Austino Milado’s Gyration Explosion (Reloaded) album officially released in 2015, have been a part of the national team. The song is often used to motivate the players to do more for the country in terms of winning football games.
From all indications, the players of the national team, both those who were born and bred in Nigeria and those who were born and bred outside the country have embraced the message in the song. Whenever it is played in the team’s camp, the mood in the camp is lifted and the players always use the opportunity to showcase their dance moves.
Recently, Ahmed Musa who has been a prominent member of the Super Eagles of Nigeria since he made his international debut on September 5, 2010, shared with his Instagram followers, a video that projected the “Naija Spirit” in the team’s camp.
In the video, Ahmed Musa led the rest of the team into the team’s dressing room. From the entrance of the dressing room, the players could be seen rocking to the gyration song.
Ahmed Musa posted the video after the Super Eagles of Nigeria defeated Egypt 1-0 and Sudan 3-1 in the group stage of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon.
Recall that the Super Eagles of Nigeria are playing their Group D matches in Garoua, Cameroon. Their last group stage game in the tournament will be against Guinea-Bissau. The match is scheduled to kick off at 20:00 on Wednesday, January 19, 2022.
Though Nigeria have already qualified for the next round of the tournament, they are expected to beat Guinea-Bissau to maintain a 100 percent winning run in the tournament.
Ahead of the last group game of the tournament, the official Twitter page of the Super Eagles of Nigeria also shared a clip of the players dancing to the “Super Eagles Carry Go” gyration song.
Just like the clip Ahmed Musa posted on Instagram, the players could be seen dancing rigorously to the gyration song.

Though the Super Eagles of Nigeria have won three editions of AFCON, they are fond of ending their journey in the tournament in the semi-final stage of the competition. But in the ongoing edition, the team’s target is to win the trophy for the fourth time.
Recall that they almost made it to the final of the tournament in 2019 but they were stopped in the semi-final by Algeria, the eventual winners of the 2019 edition. Hence, the Super Eagles of Nigeria finished the last edition of the tournament with a Bronze medal.
