Sierra Leone Pitch Could Cage Super Eagles (Photos)

By Olamide Oyetunji - West African country Sierra Leone will be hosts when the Super Eagles take to the pitch on Tuesday evening in the second leg of their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying with the Leone Stars.

Even though the playing turf of the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium is not the reason why Nigeria squandered their 4-0 lead in the first leg, after all, we scored goals in the first half but what awaits Super Eagles in Freetown must be addressed.

The Siaka Stevens Stadium pitch could be a factor and easily becomes an advantage for Sierra Leone who are extremely confidence about getting a good result to change their fortunes after their dramatic turnaround in the 4-4 draw at Benin City on Friday.

A quick look at the home turf of the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone calls for worry as the Gernot Rohr tutored Super Eagles always find it difficult to string passes together on poor playing surfaces

Siaka Stevens Stadium commonly known informally as National Stadium, is the national stadium of Sierra Leone and it is located in the capital city of Freetown.

It was abandoned for long and was put back to shape few weeks ago due to the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier that knocked their door.


Do you think the Super Eagles will cope with the Sierra Leone Onslaught?
