    If they’re having light training at the match venue(Porto Novo) why didnt they lodge there instead of Cotonou? Too much travelling will have consequences, even if Cotonou and Porto Novo are just about 30 km apart.

      @Ako Amadi, haba……must you guys complain about everything? What consequences will a 30km drive (15mins) have on the players? Abeg all they need now is our support and prayers for them to do us proud tomorrow

        You write about Nigerians “complaining about everything” Are you sure of watching the match? Why are NFF and the Ministry of Sports not even having the courtesy to let millions of Nigerians know if they can see the game on any TV station. People like you simply sit down and criticize others.

      • You know the situation of Nigeria has given some people the job of complaining about everything. It’s a state of the mind. Pardon him. If we win tommorow some people will still complain.

      No be lie o. He’s has truly being having genuine concern about this mode of transportation d team embarked on.

  • Ako AMADI 4 months ago

    A big question that the whole country is silent about is if the match will be shown on any Nigerian TV station

    • Dr Banks 4 months ago

      I give you thumbs up for the above question. No one says you should not complain but know the right issue to complain about brother

    • That question is for CAF to answer, no Nigerian TV stations has the broadcasting right.

      I think CAF has broke the TV right with dstv if am not mistaken, the implications is the match might not be on air if the host nation does not pay for the TV right. That is part of the damage caused by Ahmad Ahmad the Madagascar former CAF president

  • Seniorman will surely start tomorrow’s match alongside Osimhen. This is very likely to be our lineup tomorrow.
