The Super Eagles will leave for Sfax, Tunisia on Monday morning aboard a charter flight for Tuesday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matchday four encounter against Libya, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The game will take place at the 18,000 capacity Stade Taïeb Mhiri, the home ground of Tunisia Premier League side, CS Sfaxien.
The stadium was built in 1938 and was used for the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations.
The game will kick-off at 7pm Nigerian time.
The Super Eagles are also expected to depart Sfax immediately after the match and arrive in Abuja in the early hours of Wednesday, 17th October.
Gernot Rohr’s men defeated the Mediterranean Knights 4-0 on Saturday at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium Uyo, with Odion Ighalo bagging a hat-trick and Samuel Kalu scoring the other goal.
The three-time AFCON winners have won their last qualifying fixtures since suffering a 2-0 home loss to the Bafana Bafana of South Africa on matchday one in Uyo.
Nigeria are currently in second position in the Group E table with six points following the win against Libya, one point less than South Africa’s who beat Seychelles 6-0 in Johannesburg.Copyright © 2023 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
