Nigeria Vs Sierra Leone: Coronavirus Stops Super Eagles’ Fans

Watching the Super Eagles for free is something many would have been counting down to since the pronouncement by the Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki that the gates will be thrown open for November 13 tie at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium 

However, the latest reports indicate that the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Leone Stars of Sierra Leone will now be played without any spectators.

There were earlier reports that around 6,000 to 7,000 will be allowed into the newly refurbished ground for the game.

However, reports indicate the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 and the Ministry of Sports have advised the Edo State Government and the Nigeria Football Federation against breaching coronavirus protocol by allowing fans into the venue.“The ministry wishes to bring to your attention that in compliance with the condition of no gathering agreed upon by the ministry and the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 before the Federal Government opened up football and contact sports, the match between Nigeria and Sierra Leone will not have any audience and no gathering save for players, match officials and government officials from both countries. Testing must be conducted on all of them prior to the match,” a letter sent to the Edo State Deputy Governor Philip Shuaibu was quoted as reading in part.

The Super Eagles who presently top Group L with six points would be sealing their place in Cameroon with wins in the doubleheader against the Leone Stars.

In their opening two games against the Squirrels of Benin and Crocodiles of Lesotho, Gernot Rohr’s men picked the maximum points to stay in the pole position.
