“We do not in any way underrate the Sierra Leoneans that we play over two legs within these four days, but we have our focus and objective for the matches,” the German tactician said.

“We want to win both games so we can have the ticket and be able to be little more relaxed for the final games.“You know that next year, we also have the World Cup qualifiers to focus on. It is better to get the Africa Cup of Nations job behind us now.”

Similarly, The Players got tested for Covid-19 on Wednesday and the results came out just in time before the match, every member of the team including the non-playing staff tested negative for the novel coronavirus.

The match is slated for 5pm Nigerian time at the newly-refurbished Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin, it will be live on AIT.
