2021 AFCON Qualifier: Super Eagles Won’t Repeat Sierra Leone Mistake In Benin – Adepoju

2021 AFCON Qualifier: Super Eagles Won’t Repeat Sierra Leone Mistake In Benin – Adepoju

Former Nigerian midfielder, Mutiu Adepoju has reiterated that the Super Eagles won’t allow a repeat of the Sierra Leone 4-4 draw against the Squirrels of Benin in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Adepoju stated this in an interview with a Lagos-based radio station, where he said that the players are ready to deliver the best results for Nigeria.

The three-time AFCON champions are top of Group L on eight points while Benin sit second on seven points with teams desperate for points on March 27.

Adepoju said, “I believe this year will be different from last year, the year 2020 came with a lot of challenges that include COVID19, the Super Eagles has a unit also had their own bad time – It is normal in life,’ The headmaster said.

“I believe this year is going to be different majorly because our players are playing very well in their clubs which is very important, and I am very sure the players would have learned from what happened last year against Sierra Leone when they were held to a draw in Benin,’ He added.

    Nacho and Osimene pairing on that day should definitely not be a wise prayer point for the Beninoire team, especially with Nacho’s recent form. Lolz. The trouble maker type of attacking style of Osimene will draw out opposing team defenders to himself leaving lots of space for a precision shooter like Nacho, who only needs a bit of space to bury balls in the net. Maybe I should just liken this to DDOS in just another way. Benin may only have to rely on their percieved 12th ” PLAYER” . But to God be the Glory,THE ONE ABOVE ALL PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS: JEHOVAH ELOHIM NEUTRALISES THAT PITCH AND THE TESLIM BALOGUN STADIUM WITH THE PRESCIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST. GLORY N PRAISE TO JEHOVAH GOD FOR EVER N EVER. ONLY HIM IS WORTHY TO BE PRAISED N ADORED.

    Innocent Osimhen suffer for this, thank God that many people love that guy Osimhen, we prayed for him. NFF try more to make things better from every corner, pay them on time, check out Stadium and report to CAF how bad stadium is, encourage your stars that make you reasonable in the society, without Soccer most of you will not be notice in this world, protect stars you are leading, always make them happy. Them first before you in everything.
