The Super Eagles of Nigeria will have their hands full on Sunday when they travel to Maseru to take on hosts Lesotho on matchday two of the 2021 AFCON qualifiers, AOIFootball.com reports.
The Southern African side began their campaign on a bright note after picking an away point at Sierra Leone on Wednesday and now want to consolidate on that result when they host Nigeria on Sunday evening.
Having lost just one of their five competitive matches at the Setsoto Stadium, they will be going into Sunday’s clash with plenty of determination as they hope to record their first win over Nigeria having lost both of their two previous encounters.
The three-time African champions are expected to arrive at the capital city of Maseru on Saturday and will hold just one training session at the match venue on the same day before the clash on Sunday.
Nigeria leads Group L with 3 points, two ahead of Lesotho who have one point after their impressive draw away at Freetown on matchday 1 of the qualifiers.
