OVERVIEW OF: Rohr: Eagles Prefer Uyo Stadium For Lesotho Game
Super Eagles players would not mind playing their last 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Lesotho at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, according to head coach Gernot Rohr.
Rohr is however aware that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has the final say on the choice of venue.
Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos will host the encounter between the three-time African kings and the Crocodiles on March 30.
The Super Eagles played their last home game against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City.
“The second game, we will do it in Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos,” Rohr told NK Media.
“We know that this is a very special occasion with the pandemic, and we cannot have the usual [venue in] Uyo.
“But my players they like Uyo because of the facilities, because of the stadium.”
The Teslim Balogun stadium, which has recently undergone a facelift, with the artificial turf replaced by grass, was the last place the Super Eagles played in Lagos.
They recorded a 2-1 friendly win over Sierra Leone in 2011.
