2023 AFCOW.

For sportsnews, the Super Eagles of Nigeria will this evening take on the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone in the 2023 African Cup of Nation’s qualifiers.


The match will hold at the Mko Abiola stadium Abuja at five o’clock this evening.
This will be the Super Eagles third game and the first home match under new coach, Jose Peseiro.


A win over Sierra Leone would help put Nigeria’s qualifications campaign off to a winning start and the Nigerian team will be hoping to put their consecutive friendly defeats to Mexico and Ecuador behind them.


On Sierra Leone’s part, they will be hoping to build on their impressive two to one win over Congo from their last outing and start their 2023 AFCOW qualifying campaign strong.


Correspondent Francis Nwaubani reports that there has been sixteen encounters between Nigeria and Sierra Leone and the Super Eagles hold a superior head to head record of nine victories, while Sierra Leone has won just twice with five ending in a draw.
