Nigeria v Sierra Leone

Although the three-time African champion is an excellent choice to put all points at stake, coach Gernot Rohr hinted that his team would not keep an eye on John Caster’s men, while hoping his team would double towards early flight bookings for Cameroon. The header will win. It will also turn their attention to the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

“We are not dominating the Sierra Leoneans in any way in these four days that we play with two feet on this ball, but we have our focus and purpose for the match,” Rohr told NFF Media.

“We want to win both games to get tickets and a little more relief for the final games.

“You know, next year, we have a World Cup qualifier that we should focus on. Now it is better to get the job of Africa Cup Nations behind us. ”

There is no doubt that the Leon Stars are in dire need of a win against the Nigerians, however, they are on a large scale considering the positive outcome of winning any game away from home since 1999.

They will hope to take advantage of the fact that these fixtures will be played without fans due to the Covid-19 epidemic. Their last tour against the Super Eagles ended on February 2, 2011 with a 2-1 defeat at the Taslim Balogun Stadium.
