Gyan, Njitap, Mokoena et. al.: Players with over 100 games for their country [2]

Quite a sizeable number of African players have attained the 100 threshold of games for their respective national teams.

The most recently celebrated was Nigerian skipper Ahmed Musa, whose teammates feted him after their World Cup Qualifier in Cape Verde.

It turned out that the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, mistakenly credited Musa with two extra games because FIFA said he had 98 games per their count, a figure the NFF said it deferred to.

This is part II of African players who also acchieved over 100 games for their national teams
