Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa has come out to say that Nigeria will still win vs Sierra Leone even without their fans at the stadium.
He recently revealed that securing maximum points in the double-header is key, so the players must give their all in the game.
According to him, playing without the ever-supportive fans at the newly refurbished Samuel Ogbemudia stadium is a pity, but the boys must still seal the victory for Nigerians at home.
He added that Super Eagles will play their best games to beat the opponents in the group, home and away and wrap up qualification on time.
His words, “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,”
“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,”
“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.”
