The Super Eagles will push aside the worrisome look of the venue of Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations clash against the Pirates of Seychelles and focus on the business of the day, AOIFootball.com reports.
According to most of the players who spoke during AOIFootball.com’s investigation about the stadium, revealed that the players are very dissatisfied with the poor state of the Stade Linite but will ensure they do the job and get back to reckoning in the group that already has Libya who emphatically dispatched Seychelles in Match Day 1 and is followed by South Africa who shocked the Eagles at home in Uyo in August 2017.
According to one of the players, the team will play with caution to avoid unnecessary injuries but will ensure they record the needed victory.
“The pitch standard is terrible. It’s a very poor synthetic pitch and may cause us injuries but we will ignore that and focus on winning,” one of the players said.
