Ahmed Musa Tips Super Eagles For Victory Against Sierra Leone

Super Eagles Skipper, Ahmed Musa is confident that the team will show their quality against Sierra Leone to continue their impressive start to the Afcon qualifiers.

Super Eagles will host Sierra Leone in the first leg of the Afcon qualifiers double-header at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin.

The match will be played behind closed doors but Musa has assured Nigerians that the team will come out victorious.

“It is true we don’t know much of the Sierra Leone national team, but we have resolved to play our best game to beat them at our home and away,” Musa told the media”.

“Two victories over them will give us the ticket to Afcon, so we won’t joke with the games.”

“Playing without our ever-supportive fans at the newly refurbished Samuel Ogbemudia stadium will not affect our games both in Benin City and Freetown,” he continued”.

“It’s quite a pity that Edo fans will miss the opportunity of seeing us play live because of the pandemic but we shall try to win for them.

“For me and the team it is a very sad [playing without fans] moment because playing in Benin in the hometown of my mom, I’d love to see my family members watch but there is nothing we can do because of the situation in the country with the pandemic so we have to play like that.”

Super Eagles have earned maximum points in the first two matches of the Afcon qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho.

The first leg is slated for 5pm on Friday at the newly-renovated Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin.
