The Super Eagles’ second Group C 2022 World Cup qualifier away to Cape Verde will be played without the home fans due to the coronavirus.
Cape Verde is one of the West African countries badly affected by Covid-19.
And in adherence to FIFA’s Covid-19 protocols, fans will not be allowed into the Adérito Sena Municipal Stadium, in Mindelo, venue of the game.
According to a report by Noticia do Norte, the Cape Verdean Football Federation FCF received a communication from CAF, stating that they would have to face the Eagles without fans in their second group stage game.
Cape Verde will hope to record their first win of the qualifiers after holding Central African Republic to a 1-1 draw in their first game.
On their part, the Eagles kicked off with a 2-0 win against Liberia at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Friday.
A first half brace from Kelechi Iheanacho secured the win for the three-time African champions.
This is the first time the Eagles will take on Cape Verde in a competitive game.
Their first and only meeting was a friendly game in 2013 which ended in a goalless draw.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
