The Naija Super Eagles will take on the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in the first leg of the doubleheader of the 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifiers on Friday.
These two national teams have faced each other 14 times in all competitions, and Nigeria have won 9 games, with Sierra Leone have won just 2 matches, with the other 3 games ending in a draw.
The Naija Super Eagles will be without Kenneth Omeruo, Henry Onyeka, and Moses Simon due to injury, and they have been replaced by Paul Onuachu and Abdulahi Shehu, and all the players are in camp. Sierra Leone, on the other hand, have also arrived in Nigeria and are ready for the clash.
Nigeria are top of Group L and a win will get them closer to the 2021 AFCON tournament, while the Leone Stars are bottom of the table with one point. The Eagles should win this game without any pressure.
