The Super Eagles’ delegation to Saturday’s FIFA World Cup qualifier against Liberia in Tangier, Morocco flew into Lagos on Sunday morning aboard a chartered Air Peace flight, with team captain Ahmed Musa insisting they would best Cape Verde in their final group qualifier.
The aircraft touched down at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport at 7.30am Sunday and the three-time African champions were immediately driven to their Eko Hotel abode, with a gym session in the evening, ahead of a full training session on Monday (today) at the match venue – Teslim Balogun Stadium.
The 2-0 victory in Tangier over the Lone Star meant the Eagles have won all their away matches in the qualifying series, and need only a draw against the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde on Tuesday to progress into the final knockout round of African series for Qatar 2022.
They have scored two goals in each of the away games, with a 2-1 defeat of the Sharks on the island on Mindelo and 2-0 defeats of Central African Republic and Liberia in Douala and Tangier respectively.
Musa, who won a record 102 caps for Nigeria after coming on as a substitute in Saturday’s triumph against Liberia, said, “No one is thinking of a draw. It is a must-win match, as far as we are concerned. The mindset is to win and reach the final round of the World Cup series without any story.”
