The Super Eagles will plat the first leg of the head-to-head matches against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone in the first of an all-important African Cup of Nations qualifier double-header at the refurbished Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City on November 13.
Gernot Rohr’s men currently top Group L with six points after victories against Benin and Lesotho in 2019 while Sierra Leone are bottom of the log after a draw and loss in their first two outings.
A win for Nigeria will see them qualify for a second consecutive AFCON final after finishing third at the 2019 edition in Egypt.
Rohr is expected to name his squad for the showdown this week.
Victor Osimhen and Joe Aribo are now available for selection after missing out on last month’s friendly games in Austria.
One of the challenges is the insecurity in the nation and the players perspective on the #EndSARS protesters who have not made up their mind on attendance.
