Nigeria vs Sierra Leone 09.06.2022
After the disappointment of missing out on the Qatar 2022, the Super Eagles will begin their quest for redemption with a game against fellow West Africans, in Sierra Leone on Thursday.
The team have suffered intense criticism for their dismal performance at the last AFCON and their inability to get past Ghana in the race for the World Cup ticket.
There have been changes in the team with the Portuguese manager, Jose Peseiro now in charge of the team and he has already overseen losses in two friendly games against Mexico and Ecuador respectively. Now he will be under pressure to win against Sierra Leone.
Sierra Leone were at the last AFCON themselves and they will want to make an appearance again. However, the Eagles will be too strong for them.
