The Nigeria Super Eagles will play Sierra Leone on Friday evening, in the first of their 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header.

The Super Eagles have, however failed to win any game this year.

Their first fixtures in 2020 were friendly matches against Algeria and Tunisia.

Gernot Rohr’s lost 1-0 to Algeria and drew 1-1 with Tunisia three days later.

However, Nigeria go into today’s clash at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin, Edo State, as favourites with the Leone Stars sitting bottom of Group L with one point.

The reverse fixture will be played at the National Stadium in Freetown on Tuesday, November 17, with victory for Nigeria guaranteeing them a place at the 2022 AFCON.

Kick off time is 5pm and the game will be beamed live on AIT and SuperSport.
