Despite the disappointment in Russia, the Super Eagles duo are still committed to giving back to the society

Nigeria internationals Ahmed Musa and Abdullahi Shehu are set to play a charity game for orphans after their visit to an orphanage home in Sokoto.

Both players featured for the Super Eagles at the World Cup in Russia before the country’s exit from the group stage.

Shehu played for the entire duration in Nigeria's 2-0 loss against Croatia [his only appearance at the tournament] while Musa scored two goals that gave Gernot Rohr's side a vital 2-0 win over Iceland in their second group game.

Following the country's underwhelming campaign at the biggest football competition, the Leicester City forward and Bursaspor defender are set to put smiles on the faces of children through a match organised by Abdullahi Shehu's foundation.

Shehu's participation at the global tournament has earned rewards from the government of the state.
