The Super Eagles return home after two defeats in the United States of America to the El-Tri of Mexico and Ecuador.
It will be the first Super Eagles match in Nigeria since the 1-1 draw with Ghana’s Black Stars at the MKO Abiola Stadium, which cost Nigeria a place in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The Super Eagles have a chance to appease their supporters, but they must first defeat Sierra Leone.
