“EKO FOR SHOW: Nigeria v Lesotho #Afcon2021Q in March will be played at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.
Plenty to unpack there @NGSuperEagles,”Udoh tweeted.

  • They’ve started again. I wonder why the NFF and the Super Eagles coach don’t listen. Take the match to Uyo and beat your opponent silly. Teslim Balogun’s pitch is small. Take the match to a wider pitch and watch your opponent cry.

  • Why not just take the games back to Uyo or one of our better pitches.. Oh oh oh wait Amaju Pinnick did not get the Bribe he wanted from Uyo Governor

    I initially read about the refurbished national stadium surulere hosting the match, another twist has entered it again!

    Well, all the best to the super eagles.

      So it’s no longer National stadium surulere. Well, let’s here from the coach first.

    I think it’s because there will be no fans and secondly ,they will just move to cotonou easily after the match.goid idea.

    I think it’s a great idea… like this, the players can easily fly in on time for trainings and the logistics benefits of being able to get to Cotonou from Lagos makes a lot of sense. There wouldn’t be much need for reconnection of flights for players and the stadium is not bad as well since the national stadium is still under renovation.

    Paying Rohr and the Super Eagles in Naira does not mean they must now be playing international matches on cheap artificial surfaces to cause injury to the players.

    Lagos fans will still storm into that Teslim Balogun stadium despite the restrictions. SuperEagles deserves to return to Lagos after 20 years, and the logistics to be able to train in Lagos and then travel to Cotonou is a good idea. Meanwhile, Lagos fans are not that patient. The players will hear am from Lagos fans if they underperform. 

  • nff wants this coach to fail,is very clear.

    NNF is not serious. Osimhen may not answer the call if he is to return and be injured again. Let me say it again. Take the match to UYO or Benin Republic will defeat your Super Eagle.
