The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is now focused on preparing the Super Eagles for the next set of African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against the Benin Republic and Lesotho after a not too pleasant series with Sierra Leone.

NFF Director (Media), Ademola Olajire, told The Guardian yesterday that the Eagles’ next game would be taken seriously to ensure the team picked the points needed to qualify for the AFCON, adding that the results against the Leone Stars were minor distractions on the Eagles’ march to Cameroun 2021 AFCON.


“The Sierra Leone match is gone. Nigeria still tops the table, though we should have won the ticket outright by beating Sierra Leone in at least one of the games. We have the Benin match to look up to, and a win is non-negotiable,” he said.

MEANWHILE, Super Eagles former defender, Ifeanyi Udeze, has urged the Eagles to learn to play as a unit if they desired success in their games.

He said, “Super Eagles need to keep being committed on the field. Losing concentration and not playing as a unit affected their performance in the first leg of the qualifiers with Sierra Leone.

“They should focus on winning their remaining matches to qualify for the AFCON.”
