Media Officer of the team, Babafemi Raji explained that it was necessary to take the appropriate safety steps by having the affected players stay away from the team while waiting for the result of the second test.

“Yes we had two test results return positive and we were duty bound to adhere strictly to laid down safety protocols which we did,”Raji stated.

“The good news is that the second test results have returned negative. We will surely miss Kalu and Ebuehi, but the entire coaching crew led by Mr. Gernot Rohr has worked hard and we don’t want to lose focus. Our aim is to win and get all three points.”

Today’s encounter will take place at the Estádio Municipal Adérito Sena, Mindelo. Kick off 3pm Nigeria time.

  • We are still in order but its that oyibo guy Ebuehi that i will miss. The young man is good, he was just being plagued by injuries

     
  • Instead. It’s kalu I will miss. Kalu is a mtch winner. In rhisbtype it match we need match winners. Kalu has proved that over the years. Well I wish the team all the best. This kalu sef need to pray o. Haba.

     
  • Then call them back what Rubbish is this???? Oh maybe Rohr wants an excuse to USE MUSA without Interruption at the expense of Kalu.. ROHR ONLY GOD WILL SAVE YOU OLODO!!!!!!.

    WHY DID THE FAKE RESULT NOT FORCE MUSA WHY KALU WHY?????

     
  • Evidence of evil Nigerians sabotaging plot against Rohr. So clearly a plot to weaken the team by decimation. THE WATERLOGGED PITCH FUELED BY STRANGE RAIN FAILED THEM AS ROHR AND SE CAME OUT SUCCESSFUL; NOW THIS. STINKY BUNCH OF FAILURES. ROHR AND THE TEAM WILL COME BACK WITH 3 POINTS IN JESUS CHRIST NAME AND TO HIS MIGHTY PRAISE FOREVER N EVER.

     
  • Lets see how it goes today. Rohr can really tinker with the team formation. He can play a 3-5-2 or 4-3-3. All the department looks shaky without the preferred regulars but whatever the result we cannot fault the coach or players as circumstances seem to be against the Super Eagles in this match but we hope for the best.
    Likely starters and formation.
