Eagles set for battle against Seychelles


Nigeria’s Super Eagles will on Saturday tackle the Seychelles Islands in Victoria, in continuation of their quest to grab a ticket for the 2019 AFCON slated for neighbouring Cameroun.

The Green-White-Green boys must win today against a supposedly weak Seychelles no thanks to their 0-2 home loss to South Africa in their first group match in Uyo last year.

The Islanders certainly did not do their own quest any good, as they were whipped 5-1 by Libya in their group opener.

A win for Nigeria would surely kick-start their quest to re-appear in Africa’s ultimate football showcase – they have not been seen since they lifted the trophy in 2013.
