Super Eagles Players Promise Nigerians Of Victory Over Sierra Leone



"Shut Up, You Don't Know Anything", Super Eagles Player Blast A Fan

Super Eagles players have assured Nigerians of victory over Sierra Leone in their comiing game on Friday.

Reports has it that the NFF could resort to home-based players to shore up the number to avoid CAFG sanctions if the overseas-based stars failed to come for the game.

But such thoughts were banished yesterday when Coach Gernot Rohr and his technical crew welcomed the bulk of the invited players to the camp in Benin.


Skipper Ahmed Musa, goalkeepers Maduka Okoye and Sebastian Osigwe, Alex Iwobi, Ola Aina, William Troost-Ekong, Joe Aribo, Kevin Akpoguma, Zaidu Sanusi, Tyronne Ebuehi, Oghenekaro Etebo, and Leon Balogun took part in the first training session.

Also in the training session was Ikechukwu Ezenwa, who is one of the players on standby. Chidozie Awaziem, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Emmanuel Dennis arrived late last night.

Attackers, Paul Onuachu and Samuel Chukwueze, who left Lagos last night for Benin, are expected to join today’s training sessions.


Speaking on the readiness of the players to qualify for the Nations Cup after the two games against Sierra Leone, Chukwueze, who was in Lagos as a guest of the NFF during the unveiling of the federation’s partnership with CIG Motors, said the consensus was that everybody must put in a shift to ensure the convincing defeat of the Leone Stars.

He said, “We know there are no more minnows, but we have the quality to beat this Sierra Leone anywhere any time.

“The NFF has done well for us and we want to reward them with a good win on Friday.”


Skipper Musa sees Friday’s game as another opportunity to show Nigerians that the team has come of age.

Ahmed Musa was of the opinion that he would have loved to see his family members come around and watch this game, but there is nothing they can do about it.

“It is all about the situation of things at the moment. The pandemic (is) here in Nigeria and other parts of the world. There is nothing we can do. We have to play the game without the fans- said Musa


“We will do our best to qualify and make the fans happy,” he added.
