Former Nigerian winger, Garba Lawal has advised the Super Eagles to maintain a high level of concentration against Sierra Leone in today’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The three-time African champions will aim to end a five-game winless run as they look to pick up maximum points against the Leone Stars at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja.
The last time the two teams met, they played out a thrilling 4-4 draw at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin before managing a stalemate in Freetown in November 2020.
“On a paper, the Super Eagles are expected to pick the maximum points, however, sine football is not mathematics, the team must do everything they can to overcome Sierra Leone.
“I remember that the last time we played against them, they came back to draw the Super Eagles 4-4 in Benin and we don’t want a repeat of that game.
“Defensively, the team must maintain a high level of concentration and avoid making silly errors that could cost them the game.”
