Super Eagles battle Leone Stars



All is now set for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match between Nigeria and Sierra Leone national teams at the new Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City, Edo State.
Technically, the Super Eagles are 180 minutes away from sealing their place at the next continental showpiece and Gernot Rohr’s team gives room for optimism.
While the Super Eagles have six points from their first two games in these series, the Leone Stars have only gotten one point from the same number of games.
So a win this evening and another on Tuesday will seal qualification for Nigeria.
Meanwhile, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the carnival-like atmosphere will be missing around the Eagles but with the star-studded team set to be paraded, the goals should not be missing.

Friday’s tie in Benin City will be the 14th meeting between Nigeria and Sierra Leone since the countries first clashed in 1961 in an international friendly match, which ended 4-2 in favour of the Nigerians.
Stay with for the Live Updates.
Kickoff is 5.00 p.m.

Free kick for Nigeria

Chukwueze takes it but straight into the hands of the goalkeeper

The Leone star attempt a move from the right flank but they have been checkmated

This arguably the first time the Super Eagles will be playing a competitive match of this magnitude without their vociferous fans cheering them on.

Ahmed Musa tries to drive through the Leone Stars’ defense. He has been checkmated swiftly

Coach Gernot Rohr on his feet, the one goal lead far from being enough to be satisfied with

Goal… Victor Osimhen makes it 2-0
